The iconic Sacramento business credits Sacramento Metro Fire Department, heavy duty concrete floors with protecting projectors.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The iconic Sacramento West Winds Drive-in movie theater reopened Friday night, just four days after a fire badly damaged its concessions area and arcade.
Tony Maniscalco, vice president of marketing, credited the quick action of Sacramento Metro Fire Department — and the thick concrete floors — with protecting its high-tech projectors housed on the second floor of the structure.
“If that had been a wooden floor, this would be a different story,” he said.
Maniscalco said the building was originally designed to house heavy, old-fashioned mechanical projectors, requiring a sturdy concrete structure.
