Chuck, it could have been on the road between Staunton and Verona. The 1953-1954 edition of Theatre Catalog features this theatre, and gives a Verona location.

This is the Staunton Drive-In located north of Staunton VA in a town called Verona. As a kid my mother would take me and my brother to see family films like “THE WORLD’S GEATEST ATHLETE”. Before the place closed in the late 1980’s, I saw “TRUE GRIT” and the last film I saw there was the Clit Eastwood movie, “THE OUTLAW JOSIE WELLS” Instead of buying food at the concession stand. The sound system was nothing more than a speaker hung on the window.

The marquee is still standing, but it’s not in the best shape.
