It should be W County Road 118, not 18.

A 1963 aerial shows the drive-in intact. By 1996, it had been demolished. Today, there is no trace of the drive-in.

The tower support poles stayed standing for many years after the drive in closed. The property stayed vacant up until 2012, when different businesses were built on the land.
