Apparently it was real. An AP story from December 1955 mentioned an armed robbery at the Sunset Drive-In in Hobbs.

The Sunset did not advertise in the local Hobbs Daily News in the summer 1952 or 1960 issues I checked. (Very spotty availability online.)

The Motion Picture Almanac series included the Sunset in its drive-in for its 1957-65 editions. It had a capacity of 600 cars, and its owner was listed as O.O. Knotts.
