Found it on the 1957 photo at Historic Aerials. The approximate address would be 1105 W Ave D.

The 1964 topo map shows the Yucca completely replaced by Taylor Junior High School, so unless it moved it must have closed before then.

A more accurate address, at least for the entrance road, is 1435 W Ave D, Lovington, NM.

When comparing the 1957 aerial to present day maps, the drive-in was replaced by a housing edition that sits just to the west of the junior high.

In fact. the entrance road is now South 15th Street.
