Motion Picture Exhibitor, April 17, 1957: “The Charleston Drive-In, Charleston, Mo., has been leased by Geraldine Twitty and Earl Ferrell for the season. Andy Dietz, Cooperative Theatres, will buy and book. The owner of the situation, Doby Stout, appears to be gradually withdrawing from exhibition."

It appears that the foundation for the projector booth/concession stand still survives.
