Found it! The address is 13399 James Madison Hwy, Orange, VA and it was located on the SW side of the town. Today, a business called “Southern States” occupies the property with no trace of the drive-in remaining.

The Pitts Drive-In was still in operation in 1970, when the February 16 issue of Boxoffice reported that extensive improvements were planned by the new owners, the Mid-Atlantic Theatre Corporation. Pitts Theatres had been taken over by R/C Theatres of Randallstown, Maryland, in November, 1969. This page at says that the theater was renamed the Orange Drive-In after being taken over by R/C Theatres, and says that it was closed in 1979. Mid-Atlantic appears to have been a subsidiary of R/C.
