The above address is incorrect.

The address for this drive-in was 1421 S 2nd St.

The drive-in was located at the east end of what is now Kearney Ave.

Please update.

Display ads list the address at 1391 2nd Street, if you map it at this address you can still see the ramps next to the KOA Campground.

Ramps aren’t near the KOA, they are behind the abandoned gas station and junkyard to the south, on the other side of the street. It’s odd they listed a 2nd St address, since the theater was well off of that street, with the entrance off Kearney. At least in the satellite view, the projection/concession building is still there.

It appears that the projection booth/concession stand no longer exists and only the concrete foundation remains. A 2012 Google street view from US HWY 85 which runs along the east side of the property shows nothing is standing.

The June 25, 1949 issue of BoxOffice reported, “Floyd Davis and Nat Jones have opened their new No. 85 Drive-In at Raton, N. M., a 350-car $60,000 job.”
