Burwell Rd & Cortez Blvd is the closest intersection, so it makes for a good address.

To be more accurate, the drive-in itself is located about ¼ mile south of the intersection on the west side of the road. It was just on the south side of a large pond.

Today, the property is used for a pasture as cows are present in the street-level map. The ramps are still visible, but nothing else remains of the drive-in.
