The screen was on the north end, the owner's home sat on a rise to the east well off the drive-ins lot. Their house faced west with an overview of both the parking area and the screen through a generous sized picture window. They also kept lawn chairs out front. We were told they had speakers inside and outside so no matter the weather or the mosquitoes, they could always see the film and their business in complete comfort.
