After talking to some local people in town, the old concession building stood until the mid 2000’s when it was torn down. The foundation is still visible behind the funeral home.

Unless you knew a drive in was ever at this location, you would not know from driving by the location today. The property had been shredded and cleaned up.

The Town and Country was vandalized October 2022 is closed until further notice. Vandals broke into the concession building and projection room and damaged equipment as well as the expensive projectors. Fast forward to June 2023, a Facebook page has been created, “Show Up Big Country! (Get the Drive-In Thriving!)” by a group of local volunteers trying to get the property cleaned up, repairs made and donations to the drive in back up and running again. So far they have done a lot of cleanup work with the help of many volunteers.

I believe the N. Main St. at NE Mustang Drive and the 1100 S. Main St. address are two different drive-ins. One would be the Mustang Drive In and the other would be the Sands Drive In. Both operated by Wallace Theaters.
