SKAGIT DRIVE-IN Mt. Vernon, Wash.

The first open-air theatre to provide its patronst cars with fresh air from a central heating and ventilating system through a combined speaker and air-flow unit, designed by the owner, the Skagit accommodates about 500 cars.

The two-story concession building, housing the snack bar, lounge view room, projection booth, and apartment for its manager, is constructed of Roman tile brick. Snack bar and lounge are finished in mahogany.

A subtle psychological touch is employed in the form of valves which waft persuasive odors of popcorn and hot dogs through the ventilating system into cars, at intermissions and after the show.

A central paved walk extends from the concessions building almost to the screen tower, making it easy for patrons to return to cars after visiting the snack bar or restrooms.
