VILLACE DRIVE-IN . Scmfa Rosa, Calif.

Adapting its design to {it that of the surrounding homes and shopping center, the Village is one of the finest drive-ins constructed in 1952.

An unusual feature is that the entrance, boxofiice, concession and projection buildings are all linked to the main building by means of a covered walkway. Giving a ranch-like appearance, the buildings are made out of heavy timbers, used brick, and redwood siding left rough to add to the rustic flavor.

The concession building has a glass wall which permits patrons to view the screen while making purchases. Projection booth is on top of the building. Flood lights atop the booth light the entire field. Being illuminated this way the light shines on back of cars, and eliminates lights shining into patronsi eyes during breaks.

The elevated projection booth and a very low projection angle makes it possible to use a non-tilting screen. Since the angle of incline is only three degrees there is no keystone.
