SUNDOWN DRIVE-IN Mandan, N. D.

One of the most interesting features of this 700 car outdoor theatre is the fact that it has a long projection throw of 525 feet, with a narrow projection angle of only 70 degrees. A 60 by 40 foot picture is shown on the all-steel screen tower.

The main building is made of cinder blocks and houses the snack bar, with the projection booth also located on the roof.

The snack bar has been so arranged and equipped so that it can accommodate patrons at two complete service counters. The interior has been done in white with red trim for contrast.
