Duncan Drive In was in operation in 1949 and left the Duncan telephone book in 1984. First Bank and Trust Co. has a building on the corner now.

Was still intact in a 1981 aerial photo, but demolished by 1995.

Today, only the faint parch marks of the ramps remain.

The Duncan Drive-In Theatre‚Äôs grand opening ad is posted from September 13, 1948. On November 10, 1954 it had relaunched with what it claims was the second largest drive-in screen in the world (not my claim) at 5,000 square feet thanks to the addition of two wings to the existing tower. This allowed for CinemaScope presentations. The first Scope title was “River of No Return” on November 18, 1954.
