Approximate address is 1163 Pony Express HWY (HWY 36). The drive-in was located on the south side of the highway.

Today, the property holds at least one business with no traces of the drive-in remaining. However, there is an old marquee at the entrance to the business which may have been a part of the old drive-in. https://goo.gl/maps/dOKHy

From the June 23, 1956 Motion Picture Herald:

The Isis theatre and Hilltop drive-in at Marysville, Kan., formerly owned by Liberty Theatre Co. and now operated by Fox-Midwest, are in the hands of a receiver. The courts appointed R. L. Helvering to operate them temporarily.

Followed by the July 7, 1956 issue:

It was published inadvertently in the June 23 issue of the Herald that Fox Midwest operated the Isis theatre and Hilltop drive-in, Marysville, Kan.
