By 1949 the Sunset Drive-in movie theater was opened and operated behind the Cafe stand until the mid-1970s. It was a pretty good size theater with room for 300 to 350 cars. The Leeson's owned and operated the theater for at least twenty years. There's really nothing left of the theater to see, but while there in 2016 we were shown where the movie screen was located.
By 2016 the ticket booth for the theater had pretty much disintegrated and there wasn't much left to see. A handful of mobile homes are situated around what was the parking area.
