There is a self-storage facility operating on the drive-in property. The road up to it from the street is now called "SUPER 50 ROAD".

Also, the Super 50 operated as a twin for its final few seasons.

I worked as a projectionist at the Super 50 during my junior and senior year of high school. I spent the summer days repairing the speakers and dodging hornets!
