Found it!

The address is 1705 State Hwy 411, Johnson City, TN. The drive-in sat on the south side of the road with the screen on the SE corner of the property. The topo maps do not reveal the entrance/exit roads of the drive-in.

Today, most of the property is a parking lot along with a couple of businesses. There is no trace of the drive-in remaining.
