Do what I did.   Google search images of vintage hotdog, popcorn and pepsi ads.  Copy them from your printer and then use those printer copies as reference to draw them onto plywood.  Paint, cut and then presto!  I use mine as decor for my own drive-way theatre.

Well, you can't get more authentic than gravel littered with cigarette butts. And a few silver-painted posts with gray potmetal speakers.

My recollections of going to the drive-in are that the decoration was absolutely minimal, aside from an art-deco shroud on the screen tower (optional) and some drink/snack ads in the snackbar.

But you said "enhance", not "recreate", so I think the above suggestion is a really good one. Go for it.
