A closer address is 2008 US-63, West Plains, MO.

A 1980 aerial shows the drive-in demolished, but you can clearly see the outline, ramps, and the projector booth/concession stand appears to still be present.

Today, the property is the home to Duke Boyz, an automotive supply and repair shop. The property retains the distinctive fan-shape of the old drive-in.

Looks like an average 150-to-200-car drive-in. I don’t see any ads right after the 1958 season, so that is just my guess.

The projection booth/concession stand made it to at least 1995. Today, you can still see its foundation sitting between the two buildings.
