Perhaps March 1953 really was the Humboldt’s “4th grand opening” as its ad in the photo section stated? Boxoffice, Nov. 28, 1953: “HUMBOLDT, CALIF. – A 350-seat auditorium has been added at the Humboldt Drive-In by Meribel Theatres Co. headed by Mary and Walter Bell. The airer, opened in 1950, now will stay open all winter. … In 1950, the Bells opened the Humboldt Drive-In at Alton and the Bel-Air at Eureka.”
