The September 19, 1953, issue of Boxoffice reported that the 300-car drive-in theater that Mr. and Mrs. Percy Bond had under construction on Highway 80 east of Loraine would be called the Dona-Lin, named for their only grandchildren, Donna Jan and Ray Lynn Beights.

The concession building appears to still exist, the site is now a farm and still has the same outline. Also the remains of the road sign are still there.

The front of that “farm,” or whatever it is, shows a street address of 9335 (per July 2019 Street View), but I can’t get Google Maps to use that number accurately on the I-20 Frontage Road.
