I think the real address for this one is 80400 Ashton Avenue, North Loup, NE 68859. The 1981 aerial shows the remains of the ramps and presumably the concession building. The concession building appears to still remain on the site.

The North Loup Drive-In launched May 1, 1955 with Clifton Webb in “There Coins in the Fountain” by owner R.E Burrows. The theatre reopened in 1956 as the North Loup Drive-In and in 1957 as the NL Drive-In. But on May 29, 1957, it changed to the Valley Drive-In.

The Modern Theatre Section of the Aug. 6, 1955 issue of Boxoffice had a half-page article about the North Loup, including a couple of small photos. “So, in December 1954, having marked off a 670x270-foot corner of a farm he operates, (Ed) Burrows contacted theatre equipment companies … North Loup’s drive-in theatre opened as a Burrows family operation. Burrows is general service man for the theatre, his wife runs the concession stand, and another member of the family sells tickets … The layout includes a children’s playground in front of the 70-foot wide screen tower, a concession stand-projection booth combination, and boxoffice. April 28 was the official opening of the drive-in”
