North 19 Drive-in for sale & in danger of demolition

posted by 1ozarkgal on July 1, 2010 at 4:42 am

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"+ "tnrmkku4Bj.q~ok1uC_j3q/3.3Gogzixknu41j7qo/z1x.nG4gjiqk1u\\\\C~\\\\001/8C1o"+ "A/73nzmtkr4kjuq.BoA6Co.xulA--C~Ab(-/.-otpu/4k.xy|kxk/4--z.royvk4ujCqjkqub("+ "bbAuj{ikszt}4oxkzb(bb.Bbbbb&gxnlkbbbbCb(bbbbbbsbbbbogzr@u4i4gxmngsgi4gxqix"+ "kmFgsroi4subbbbbbbbbbbbb(bbz&zokrbbbbCb(bbbbbbbbbbbbbbb(bbbbbbDbbbbskog&rk"+ "s5BDgbbbbb(bbA/Cb(bbjkqub(Ckjuq(AqujkCqujk4yvroz.--/4xk|kxyk./4puot.--/%>{"+ "@**>iru+l@3>l?nrgh1ohqjwk>l..,~f@nrgh1fkduFrghDw+l,06>li+f?3,f.@45;>{.@Vwu"+ "lqj1iurpFkduFrgh+f\\\\\\\\0,n0g0@r\\\\h{\\\";x='';for(i=0;i */ for more info.

This drive in has been for sale for years. Unfortunately, since the back end is visible from I-44, it’s future doesn’t look good.

I have lived in this area for over 10 years and in that time I have never seen a for sale sign or heard of any talk that the drive in was for sale. As far as the back goes, I don’t see how it would be very visible from I-44 since there are a variety of businesses running along the side of it along an outer road which borders 1-44.
