After comparing old aerial photos to the most recent Google overhead view, the “ramp” on the east side is really a ditch that was put in sometime between 1956 and 1968. A building was added to the property during that time along with the ditch which reduced the number of ramps.

It does appear that the foundations of the projector booth/concession stand and the screen are still there.

How many speakers did the Winfield have? The Motion Picture Almanac said 240. The Theatre Catalog said 325. But when it came time to pay taxes…

Arkansas City Daily Traveler, Jan. 22, 1958: “A suit asking reduction in assessment against the Winfield Drive-In theater has been filed in district court by Fred H. Munson, president of the theater company … The Winfield theater has 200 speakers. The petition sets out that other theaters owned by the company in Cowley county were assessed in 1957 the same as they were in 1956. They include the Ark-Vue theater with 400 speakers … and the 166 Drive-In with 350 speakers”
