Located in Mount Vernon, Skagit County, WA, hence the name. The Skagit Drive-In was opened in 1951 and held 500 cars on its 10 acres lot. It was designed, owned and operated by Elden D. Pollack. He also designed a unique central heating and ventilating system which provided it’s patrons cars through a combined speaker and air-flow unit. The unit also wafted aromas of popcorn & hot dogs into the cars at intermissions and after the show.
The two story concession building also contained a snack bar, lounge view room, projection booth and an apartment for the manager.
The Skagit Drive-In was still open in 1955 when it was operated by Ed Snow of the Lincoln Theatre in Mount Vernon.
