From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, July 1952.
A new wonder opens tomorrow night on Wonder Stump Road. It is the Ocean Drive-in Theater, Del Norte’s first movie theater for which autos are used for seating — you bring the auto!
The theater will handle 450 cars per performance. Located five miles north of Crescent City off Highway 101, it is managed by Dick Miller. Bill McCuen is projectionist. Proprietors are J.A. Leach, Miller and McCuen.
