There are many sites for drive-ins or drive ins (depending upon just how the term is spelled) and if you use both spellings as a search term in a search engine such as www.google.com, you will come up with many sites, some more helpful than others. Here is the url for one sited dealing just with one state: http://my.execpc.com/~andyhil/index.htm
There are links to others on the THEATRE LINKS page on the sidebar of the front page of the THEATRE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA'S site at:
www.HistoricTheatres.org Most of that site deals with indoor theatres, but it does have links to outdoor sites.
Amphitheatres have different meanings in different places. Of course, you are familiar with the ancient Greek examples from which the word originated, but more modern ones have been built on suitably contoured land sites for centuries. In our day, many have been built on flat land by means of stadium seating risers, so STADIA or STADIUMS may also be search terms for you to use, in addition to AMPHITHEATRES. Few web sites will contain the actual drawings for them, but it is possible to go to an Architectural Archive and ask to view of copy the drawings stored there. ARCHITECTURAL ARCHIVE might also be a search term you could use.
