no i don’t think so and anyway it’s now an empty lot should be listed as demolished.

Was there ever a second drive-in the Porterville or am I dreaming?

This drive-in was owned by the same family throughout its run, 1950-2004. But they leased it out at other times. Although there was vandalsim in the snack bar, they left the projectors alone. As noted in the 4th photo link from Chuck1231, the perimeter fence didn’t last very long. Other web searches have neighbors calling it an eysore after it sat vacant for many years afterward.
