A closer address is 2709 US-49E, Greenwood, MS.

While the description says the drive-in shut down in 1989, a 1982 aerial does not show a screen at the location. Whether this was a temporary situation, if this is another drive-in, or I just cannot spot the screen I cannot say.

Today, Southside Storage occupies part of the property. You can still see most of the ramps, the foundation of the concession stand/projection booth, and the marquee which has been repurposed by Southside Storage.

That 1982 aerial looks like some business chopped off the north half of the drive-in’s viewing field, and the topo map from the same year shows pretty much the same thing. The booth is near the northern edge of the drive-in. Weird-looking!

The Winchester Drive-In in OKC has the same offset projection booth, albeit on the other side. And the Winchester was designed that way. So, the same is possible for the Delta Drive-In.

However, that does not explain the missing screen in the 1982 aerial.
