The Kmart on the site of this drive-in closed in 1997. The building is still vacant.

This drive-in theater survived the 1953 Beecher Tornado with only minor damage confined to walls and fencing and the attraction board. The screen and refreshment building survived intact so the drive-in reopened as soon as the curfew was lifted.
