FOR A GOOD 15-20 YEARS THERE WAS A GREAT LITTLE DRIVE-IN IN SAUGUS CAL. I WORKED THERE 1 NIGHT ON AN EMERGENCY WHEN THE OPERATOR FAILED TO SHOW DUE TO CAR TROUBLE. IT WAS THE EARLY 1970'S. IT WAS JULY AND SAUGUS WAS HOT AS HADES BUT THIS LITTLE DRIVE-IN HAD GIANT AIR CONDITIONING AND SOMETHING I HAD NEVER EXPERIENCED...AUTOMATIC CHANGEOVERS. WOW!! I HAD BEEN A PROJECTIONIST ABOUT 6 YEARS AND I WOULD LIKE TO GET A PICTURE OF THIS DRIVE-IN FOR MY COLLECTION IF POSSIBLE. THE MUSTANG HAS BEEN CLOSED NOW FOR 25 YEARS. THANK YOU, JOHN D.

You must have never worked the GCC houses. We had auto change-overs at the Avco, Santa Anita and earlier at the Sherman Oaks 1 & 2. GCC Northridge 3 was also auto change-over equipped before it was damaged by the Northridge earthquake. GCC Santa Anita 4 was the last GCC house to use 6k reels and auto change-over in Southern California.
