Postcards 2020: Movie Screen on the beach at Lumina
This postcard is postmarked 1914 and on it, you can see the movie screen and grandstand set up on the beach for watching movies!
At the end of the Beach Car line was Lumina pavilion, built in 1905 by the Tidewater Power Co.; Lumina was constructed on 200 feet of ocean frontage at Station 7. Lumina’s 12,500 square foot complex presented visitors with three levels of games and activities including a magnificent dance hall and a movie screen in the surf.
The next postcard is from a photograph by Arcadia Publishing which shows another view of the movie screen
A reminder to folks who are fans of my postcard posts. Coming in 2021, I will be highlighting the cards that you guys send to me. So send me a postcard! And you will see it on the blog in 2021. Amanda Arkebauer PO Box 16131 Seattle, WA 98116
