I think the original address should be moved into the Overview if the new one is updated. This will make it easier for future research should it be needed. As there are no photos or print ads that show the original address. I originally found this theatre on a fluke during a search for something else, and added it at that time.

A closer address is 3308 NE 3rd St, Prineville, OR.

Google Maps has updated their addresses (as they often do). This one places it right where the old entrance road connected to NE 3rd.

A 1982 aerial shows the drive-in intact, although clearly closed with vegetation growing on the ramps.
