The site remained vacant for several years until it was torn down for a retail complex with Target and Costco in 2007.

“A Redstone theater, this drive-in eventually had two screens: Cascade Red and Cascade Blue. For many years, even after the theater itself closed, it was the site of the Woodland Drive-In Church.”
