the marquee still remains

When looking at the 1953 and 1971 aerial photos, the marquee that is being used by the church was not present. In fact, the location of the marquee today is in the middle of where the entrance road for the drive-in used to be.

There does not appear to be any roadside marquee present in either aerial photo. There is something that sat between the entrance and exit roads in the 1953 aerial, but it appears to be gone or considerably changed by 1971.

You can just make out the faint remnants of the ramps sitting behind the church, but that is all that remains of the drive-in.
