The site is now a storage facility. The original marquee is still being used to advertise for the storage business.

Boxoffice, Oct. 7, 1950: “TOPPENISH, WASH. – The $85,000 Top-Hi Drive-In has been opened on the new Track road north of town by owners Arthur H. Darby and his son Erwin. The Darbys, who also own a theatre in Naches, started construction of the Top-Hi in May and did their own work throughout. The 350-car situation will be managed by Arthur Darby and his son will manage the Naches operation and will book for both theatres.”
