A closer address is 9590 US-283, Albany, TX.

The drive-in sat on the west side of the road. A 1964 aerial photos shows the drive-in being torn down with the screen gone.

Today, the property is split in half by an entrance road along with several businesses on either side. There is no trace of the drive-in remaining.
