Information for this tour was contributed by The Evil Sam Graham.
The marquee in these images was their second. I think it was new for this season, 1993. It took months to take that screen tower down due to asbestos removal. At one point, there was nothing but a lumber frame (no panels, nothing) and the ladder. Menards now populates the site. There's nothing left of the drive-in. People often confuse the Pioneer Drive-In for the SE 14th (as it's also on SE 14th up the road, and it's screen tower is still up.)
