The owners will not restore or sell because they saw the destruction as a sign from god that the era of drive-ins was gone…..

No it is sign that the screen tower from 1952 needed replacement!!That would be a great DI to reopen, it has room for a second screen tower.

There’s a nice 1974 photo at VintageAerial.com showing mobile homes in place on those pads to the northwest of the drive-in. Sure looks like a prime restoration candidate.
