Found It!

The drive-in was located at 8815 Cairo Rd, West Paducah, KY. It first appears in a 1957 aerial photo. At some point, the construction of HWY 60 wiped out the north side of the property where the screen sat.

Today, J.C. Cates Construction sits on the property along with a few private homes with no trace of the drive-in remaining.

The Airport probably opened in 1953. It looks like the theater is short-lived, closed in the late 1950s. It was immediately demolished in the early 1960s it looks like.
