There was confusion about the locations of the West-Vue and Starlight DI’s. So Ken updated/posted it with the info he had.
That was in U.S News & World Report?? You have been doing some great overviews of DI’s, you must have source’s of info dallas…
If you get a chance email me at rstuder@buckeye-
Uploaded some pictures of the old concession stand. They are building a new one!!
Could this DI may have been named the Starlite DI when it opened?

Great pictures Jay!!
Uploaded flyer for the DI from 1961. Wineland Theatres was the operators.
I’m surprised that they did not twin or triple the DI in the later years.
They must have up-graded the screen tower to screen Cinema-Scope pictures after this picture was taken.

All the doors and gates were locked up with no trespassing signs posted. I did once and got busted at another DI…LOL!!
Uploaded some pictures. The DI is in poor condition and for sale.

The screen tower looks like it has some holes init.
Some information from the net.
Not sure if you are aware of this old track or not. It sat right behind where the current Lincoln High School sets in Shinnston on property owned by George Rice who owned a drug store in Shinnston. It was one of the most unique facilities I have ever seen to this day. It was both a drive in theater and ¼ mile dirt race track, a real multi use facility back in the middle of the 50’s.. The concession stand was under the screen and also served as the concession stand for the track on nights (or days) the track operated.

Was this the Route 29 Drive-In at one time?
Thanks..I wish I had some pictures of it when it first open in 1941. I bet it had outside blast speakers.
