I believe the 70 Drive In was advertised as being 2 miles west of West Memphis. I don’t know any specifics beyond that. It was in operation around 1951, operating in competition I guess with the Sunset. I don’t think it was around but a couple of years.

In the early 50’s, there was another drive-in in the West Memphis area, the 70 Drive-in.

The area covered by the drive-in was considerable. The screen was located in the parking lot next door to the auto salvage site. You can still see traces of the outline of the drive-in that emanated from the screen southwest towards what is now an abandoned trailer park. http://tinyurl.com/zkeemg3
