Was the Sunset Drive-In located next to the South Twin Drive-In?

If so, the address would be Yarbro Lane and Abell Drive, Paducah, KY. The drive-in appears to have been built and opened before the South Twin, but it is clearly closed by 1968 as the screen is down.

Today, the property is split in half by Abell Drive and there is no trace of the drive-in remaining.

Appears to have opened July 1, 1953. Closed September 20, 1972 with “Skyjacked.” Became the Sunset Auction Lot.

Unfortunately Speaking Of Its Opening Day, The Sunset Drive-In Opened With No Movie. It Opened With A Hillbilly Jamboree Titled “Renfro Valley Folks Barn Dance Show (With Those Grand Hillbilly Funmakers From The Hills Of Old Kentucky)”.

When I Looked For The First Attraction, It Is Actually Hard To Find On The Newspapers Website. I Can Find Attractions From 20 Days After The Theater Opened.
