Blue Moonlight Drive-In

Originally opened as the Galesburg Drive-In in 1949, this drive-in lasted until 1980 and had been operated by the Kerasotes chain. When its current owners purchased the property in the mid-1980’s, they initially used it for an antique tractor restoration business, but starting in 2004, the owners, the Carlsons, began a restoration of the long-shuttered drive-in.

After more than a year of hard work, the restoration and renovation of the outdoor theater was completed, and as of early-August 2005, it has reopened. Now called the Blue Moonlight Drive-In, this theater features first-run movies, a newly refurbished concession stand, a children’s playground, and free admittance for children under 12.

I like their amazing snack shack. They serve a full menu and even have tables for a sit down meal. Their tenderloins cover the plate and I like to put ice cream on their home made pies and brownies!
