Actually, the Hi-Way Movie Drive-In opened its gates on August 13, 1949 with Randolph Scott in “Gunfighter” for one day only.

It looks like this was originally called the “Hiway Movie Drive-In” as per Mike’s comment. There’s a newspaper ad from 1951 with it under that name.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in. The address currently displayed in the heading is a residential area about 1 mile west of the drive-in. It may have been the residence of the manager or owner.

Here is a 1969 aerial photo of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.
