In 2014, some locals were trying to find a way to save the mural. The story was in The Post and Courier of Charleston.

Tex Roberts, whose uncle helped create it, was leading the effort, and “the owner, Keith Kinard, also is willing to work to save the screen, even going so far as to subdivide his land.”

Based on what I see in a May 2106 Google Street View and the 2017 aerial view, I’d guess it was torn down. :(

The Walterboro Drive-In opened its gates on July 21, 1947, with Bob Steele in the 1945 Canadian mountie flick “Northwest Trail” plus a few unnamed short subjects. And yes, it was first operated by the one-and-only E.B. Funderburke, who also later opened the North Walterboro Drive-In on Highway 15 six years later.

The Walterboro Drive-In closed for the final time in 1991. It closed a few months after the opening of the Ivanhoe Family Cinemas.

The screen was still standing in a 2013 aerial photo, but was gone by 2015.
