It would appear this should be “Closed/Demolished”. Haveing scrolled up and down Orange Street in Google Earth, I can find no trace of it’s exsistence on current maps, or any historical imagery going back to 2004. Apparently it’s become a residential development now.

I wouldn’t be surprised. I usually list the drive-ins as closed unless we get some evidence to the contrary.

From what I gather, the location is wrong. Here is a current view of where it was (Hwy 22 and Houser, near the High School)

And what it looked like in 2000
