Built on the site of the Joy Drive-In which was operated by Joy Theatres Inc. and was closed in 1951. The Rocket Drive-In was open in 1955 with a car capacity listed at 689 cars. It was initially operated by Rowley United followed by United Artists in 1966. The drive-In closed in 1980. Today only the concession/projection building stands in an empty field where the drive-in once stood.

A closer address (at least for Google) is 415 Renfroe, Magnolia, AR. The faintest hint of the ramps remain.

415 Renfroe is on the wrong side of the street.

The Florence family bought the Joy Theater and Drive-in in February 1950. The Joy Drive-in was demolished and the Rocket Drive-in was built in its place at the southwest intersection of South Jackson and Renfroe.“ So it would be aka the Joy Drive-In. Maybe it would be considered a separate DI with it’s own page?
