JWmovies is correct, the address (at least for Google) is 3400 W Idaho St, Elko, NV. The actual drive-in sat on the north side of the property where the parking area is currently located. It retains the basic shape and ramps, otherwise there is no trace of the drive-in remaining. http://tinyurl.com/j69jqyj
