A better location…

The Drive-in was located southwest of the intersection of U.S. 62 and Kenner Road. The outline is still visible. There is a house behind where the theater stood but there is now a home in front of the property.

The drive-in is on the south side of US 412, roughly 1/5 mile southwest of County Road 65.

There was no Drive-in here in 1956.

That’s the property Sam. I know it was open from at least 1978-1984 because I saw many films there as a kid. The Outsiders, Used Cars, Stir Crazy and FireFox that I can remember. We used to bring blow up rafts to lay on. Such a shame they had to close, as the weather down there is awesome for an outdoor theater.

This is the only drive-in I could find between those two citiies:

Hard to see, but shows up better in older views.

All I could find out is that the drive-in was not open in 1967.

Sure could use an address (the house?), a crossroad, and more info or photos.
