The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in. The address currently displayed in the heading is a residential area about 1 mile west of the drive-in. It may have been the residence of the manager or owner.

Here is a 1969 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.
