Actually, the theater is pretty much still intact. The roadside pylon, screen, and concession building are all standing. There is some sort of industrial business operating on the property, and there are tractor trailers and other heavy equipment on the site. Too bad, it would make an awesome drive-in again!

The marquee has been gone for several years. There's no evidence there was ever a drive-in even there. Final season was 1985.
