“Lou Siebert has taken over the Joyce Drive-In and reopened on the 14th. Siebert has had lots of experience in the motion picture business, having run theatres all over the south and has been a film salesman for many of the film companies. He has put in a widescreen, and has repainted the entire screen tower, fence and concession stand.” — Boxoffice, April 18, 1960

The drive-in was located on US-69 about 2 miles south of Pryor Creek, on the east side of the hwy.
