The address, at least according to Google Maps, is 22331 NC-903, Robersonville, NC 27871. This is the location of Corey and Sons Farms.

The drive-in was located north of the town on the east side of the road. It appears intact and operational in a 1957 aerial. It may have lasted into the 1980s, but by 1993 it was closed and demolished.

Today, no trace of the drive-in remains.

As suggested above, the Sundown’s first appearance in the Motion Picture Almanacs was the 1952-53 edition.

The 1977-82 MPAs listed the Sundown with J. Highsmith but the capacity down to 150. The 1983-84 MPAs showed the owner as T. B. Leggett. The Sundown dropped off the MPA drive-in list in 1985.
