This is screen 1 of the Tucson DeAnza 4. This screen appears to be a Selby. It replaced the original telephone pole and plywood version which blew down in a storm many years ago.
These photos were taken on July 5, 2003.This shot is looking West, almost directly into the sun.
Screen 2 to the right (North) of screen 1.
Note that it's a smaller version of screen 1 and appears also to be a Selby.
This is screen 3 which was added in 1978 to make the DeAnza a 4 screen.
Note that it looks very much like a billboard.
Another view of screen 3 from the side. Note that the road goes in front of it to get to lot 4.
There is no skirt on the bottom of this screen. It really isn't a problem as there are houses behind it and so no light from traffic glares into the theater.
This is screen 4 on the southwest corner. Again, it looks like a Selby.
This screen and screen # 2 were added in 1977 to make the DeAnza a triple.
The billboard looking screen was added in 1978 to make a 4th screen.
This was probably in response to the now gone Syufy 4 adding a 5th screen around the same time.
