Another photo from the Joe Basil collection. Joe managed the Sunset from about 1952-54 for United Drive-Ins, of which his father, A. G. Basil, of Raymond, WA was a partner. Projection room of the Sunset.

The Sunset had the full RCA projection and sound package. Breenkert BX-80 projector heads, RCA MI-9030 soundheads, RCA-Brenkert projector pedestals, and Brenkert “Enarc” carbon arc lamphouses. RCA Drive-In theater sound system feeding 70 to 100 volts constant voltage speaker output. RCA “old style” junction boxes on top of the speaker poles contained a step-down transformer for the in-car speakers.

I’ll bet the old projectionists really had their hands full. I worked in grandfather’s Raymond Theater through my high school years 58-61 but never got a a shot at the projection room! Wish I had!
