North 19 Drive-in for sale & in danger of demolition
CUBA, MO — The [url=/theaters/9767/] North 19 Drive-in[/url[ which is located right off of Interstate 44 and approximately 1 mile from Historic Route 66 has been placed up for sale. It’s in a prime location for commercial developers to come along and level it, since it is right across from a truck stop and right next to a restaurant.
Opened in 1954, it is a single screen drive-in with the capacity for about 250 cars. Open nightly from April ‘til October, it runs first rate movies, and usually packs a full house most every night we go. I speak for my family and for many of my friends and others in the community that we would love to see the drive in open for many more years to come, and it is in dire need of a buyer who would preserve the history of the theatre. Unfortunately, these theaters are dying out and our future generations won’t be able to enjoy the fun nights out at a drive-in that we’ve had.
If anyone is interested they can call the theater directly at (573) 885 7752, or 4Ejzq"+
