Sadly, the screen and all signs of the old drive-in are gone.

The Screen appears to have been torn down. https://goo.gl/maps/R9eE5

Bing Maps' “Bird’s Eye” view uses images that are several years old.

Update: Use 578 US Highway 6, La Salle, IL to locate it. Switch to BingMaps, Birdseye View. Then rotate so you are looking south, from the north. You can see the screen in it’s full, trapezoidal glory.

It appears that the push pin in the Google Map is a bit off. Move it about a half mile east. If you open Bing Maps, then use the satellite view, pan east until you see a “Y” shaped drive way. It currently is the home of a dirt auto race track, LaSalle Speedway.

While a “Y” shaped drive is not unusual, look towards the south end of the parking lot, directly south of the “Y” drive. THERE IT IS! The screen is still standing, or maybe part of it. Note the shadow cast by the late morning sun.
