Site is now a private residence, it looks like they kept the concession building and converted it into housing or storage.

The Bel-Air did close in the late 80s, I believe. However, it did re-open after the other Richmond Drive-In, the Hi-Way Drive In, burned down. Though the reopening probably didn’t last more than a couple of years before closing permanently.
