Here is the location of the drive-in.

You can still see some of the ramps, the old entrance, and what appears to be the screen foundation.

Ken, is this your photo? I work for a local magazine and would love to use it as part of our series highlighting how places around town have changed. I will certainly give you credit if you give me the ok.
