The Shawnee Drive-in Theatre was built by Dickinson Theatres in 1948, Dickinson’s 4th drive-in. The screen was of concrete construction. The lot held around 400 cars & had a playground below the screen. The marquee was turquoise. Played a lot of Disney & Westerns.

It was located on Shawnee Mission Parkway between Quivira & Pflumn (The Southwest Corner of Shawnee Mission Parkway and Long). The Shawnee was demolished in the 1970’s. This area is now a Bayer Drugs Facility. The zipcode above is incorrect, the correct address is: 12505 W. 63rd, Shawnee, KS 66216.

The address above is also wrong. The correct address is buried within your post Claydoh77. You’ll find it.

I’m confused? 1 Mile south of Shawnee, KS on Highway 10 is the old address but I believe the address of the current location is 12505 W. 63rd, Shawnee, KS 66216.

The address that I have for this drive-in is:
12505 Shawnee Mission Pkwy
Shawnee, KS 66216
Now, Claydoh77 explained to me via email that Shawnee Mission Pkwy is the same as West 63rd street. The problem is actually with the wacky Google map. It won’t map the above address, but it will map 12505 Shawnee Mission Pkwy.
