I believe this is confused with another theater. The Do Drive-In was on Highway 43 about .20 miles “west” (away from town) of Wolf Ridge Road. There is a shopping center on the site now, but on Google Earth you can see what may be the remains of the ramps on southern side of the property.

The address is 3456 Saint Stephens Road, Mobile, AL, which points directly at the current entrance. You can make out the remnants of the drive-in on the south side of the property as lonespaceranger has pointed out.

Odd name!! Shortest name for a drive-in or any cinema?

For short names, there was “The Drive-In”. I’ve seen references to one in Prichard and other cities in Alabama.

Actually opened in June 1950. Also it provided access for people with small planes, if you look at the oldest aerial photos there was a long access road on the southern part of the property. This lead to a small airstrip.
