Way North of town is what looks like a fan shaped rows, and an abandoned asphalt road to the West.

JWMovies is correct, the address (at least for Google) is 3090 Lexington Road, Nicholasville, KY. Today, “The Boot Store” along with a few other businesses sit on the property, but you can still see some of the ramps. http://tinyurl.com/z4updn2

The Lexington Drive-In became statewide headlines in its last year of operation after a 24-year-old man was shot there right after the Lexington Drive-in reopened for the 1987 season. The suspect, 22-year-old Stephen Michael Jones, was later charged with first-degree murder.

A Home & Garden Stone & Accents store has been built over the ramps, wiping out all remaining traces of the drive-in.
