Information for this tour was contributed by Darren Snow.

Capacity: 400 cars in 1953; later expanded to two screens. After this, it was called the "Drive-Ins" rather than the "Drive-In."

In its early days, the Corral was run by the Edwards-Plumlee Circuit. Presently, the screens are crumbling; the separate projection booths are so surrounded by weeds that it's hard to get to them. The recent-looking snack bar -- a corrugated-metal building -- has been gutted and vandalized; there's some unintentionally hilarious teenage graffiti inside. The fences (with snazzy lamp housings), gates, and ticket booths still stand. The conestoga-shaped marquee is in bad shape.

The 1986 International Motion Picture Almanac lists the operator as Kerasotes.
