Description
Roadium Drive-In. 2500 Redondo Beach Blvd, Torrance, CA 90504. It was opened prior to 1953. In the 1960’s they began having swap meets and eventually stopped showing movies completely. The Roadium Open Air Market today is one of the largest of its type in California for almost 40 years. The marquee, screen tower and concession/projection booth buildings still stand and the concession area does a nice business. The speaker poles have been removed. http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/10951
