Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Starlite Drive-In was the first drive in the state of Iowa, opening on September 12th, 1947. The back of the screen tower had "Starlite Drive-In" spelled out in blue neon and a red & yellow blinking neon star in the upper right hand corner.

It closed in the early-1990’s, was demolished and replaced by a Hy-Vee supermarket and a Walgreens drug store
