19 Drive-In for sale

CUBA, MO — If you’re in the market for one, the 19 Drive-In is for sale. With its future in doubt, this is the time to save this treasure.

Located just off I-44, the North 19 has been showing movies on its single screen since 1954. It has a 250-car capacity and a few old-fashioned speakers so you don’t have to wear out your car battery by listening to the soundtrack over the satellite radio.

Old movie theater enthusiasts are concerned that, owing to its prime location, the North 19 will be bought by some commercial developer and demolished.

I live in Cuba, MO, and hopefully the drive in can be saved. It has been here for 56 years, and hopefully it can stay 56 more. I guess the story about the drive in back on July 1 here on this website prompted Aimee Levitt of the Riverfront Times to contact me for further info about thee drive in. At that time, the real estate indicated there may be a potential buyer, but we will see….
