A 1955 aerial shows what appears to be the beginning stages of construction. The foundation for the projection booth/concession stand is in place along with the entrance road.

A 1958 aerial shows the drive in complete and operational. It is still intact in a 1986 aerial, though that does not mean it was operational. By 1996, it had been demolished.

Today, almost all traces of the drive in are gone. However, what appears to be the brick foundation of the marquee is still present.
