It is to bad they cannot rebuild it and open it up for screening movies all summer.
The Starlighter is listed on CT, but not AKA the El Chico or Chico.
Uploaded the grand opening ad. Also the Chico DI located in Española, NM was listed also.
Great!!! I was looking at the same paper also.
OCRon..so the correct address is 3714 Cerrillos Road Santa Fe, NM 87507 for the Yucca.
The Pueblo Drive-In was at 3251 Cerrillos Road, Santa Fe, NM 87507 ?
In looking at topo maps of the area there was two drive-ins pretty close to each other.
You could add the Pueblo Drive-In to CT, OCRon…
It looks like they are just building it.
Pre-cinemascope screen tower.
Good pictures, do you have a address for it Chris 1982?
It is on: N County Road 800 E, Tuscola, Illinois 61953 To get a exact address might be tuff.
Look for the silo in the middle of the farm field and that is it!!
A better address is:
Old Airport Rd & Edwards Street, Hattiesburg, MS 39401
The Sundance Kid Drive-In replaced there 1949 screen tower which blew down last winter. It was all about $200,000.It is big one…
Here is you tube video about the death of theStarlite
I found it:
5830 Bandera RdSan Antonio, TX 78238
Have any pictures to share bobgunner?
Maybe somebody else might take it over.
blu_tango would you be interested in posting your pictures on the Sutton Page?
In looking at your pictures and dates of when the freeway was built I don’t think so. I did you send email on your Blog about the location. Also great pictures!!
@dcallahan have pictures to share?
Using 37.784050, -94.703707 and 863 S Main St. in goggle maps it locates to the same location. Sometimes goggle maps can off also.
From the website:
Midway Drive-In was constructed in 1953 and has been showing movies every summer since then. It was originally owned and operated by Ernest Schweigerdt and John Kirschenman.
Ernest’s daughter, Alyce, and her husband Marvin Oligmueller purchased the drive-in in 1963. In 1968 a strong summer storm came through during the showing of a movie. The wind was so strong that it blew the screen down. The screen was rebuilt right away and movies were shown throughout the rest of the summer.
In 2004, Midway Drive-In came under new ownership and continues to offer movie-goers in central South Dakota great movies and that nostalgic “drive-in” experience. The current owners are Sally and Duane Resel, Steve and Lori Resel, Stephanie and Jim Bonebright, Sarah Resel, and Mike and Nan Donlin.
Midway Drive-In is one of only five remaining drive-in theatres in South Dakota, the first to convert to digital projection. Whether it’s your first trip to a drive-in or you’re returning to rekindle that unique drive-in feeling, Midway Drive-In is the place to See the Stars from your Cars.

Oldtimet..have any pictures?
Uploaded aerial from 1963. It looks the drive-in was turned into small landing strip. There is a Crop Production business across the road. My thinking is that it is used for aerial spraying of crops.
Yep..Kerry Segrave’s book “Drive-in Theaters A History from Their Inception in 1933” is pretty good also.
No I have not. Sometimes my source’s are back issues of old newspapers There is alot of the small town drive-ins that not on CT. I’m working on Hutchinson, KS drive-ins now.
