Have built three N scale layouts, 3 x 4, 4 x 4 and 3 x 6, basically all from scratch. The pics attached are from my 4 x 4 layout and depict an actual working Drive-In Theatre. The DI was built from Blair Lines drive-in kit and the rest being scratch built. The screen is an actual "dolls house" video and is connected to a VCR. As all of my layouts are based on the late 1940's til 1959, the only movies shown are from that era. Notably John Wayne (Fort Apache) and other such classics.


Would welcome any comments on my endeavors …

I love it! What a nice addition to a layout in that era. Adds a ton of realism and nostalgia! Great work, Geoffrey!
