That makes sense because Kansas City is larger than Augusta and we had 9 screens not including one in North Augusta and the five or six over in Aiken County,S.C. across the river.

Does anyone know if there was a MAJESTIC THEATRE in Kansas City? reason I ask was there was a short lived TV series “THE POPCORN KID” and it took place in the MAJESTIC. I was wondering if like the creators of WKRP had worked it such a theatre because the stories were so close to theatre life. I am glad i was able to tape a few shows before it got the ax in the mid 80’s.

There were about 20 Drive ins in the KC metro area in the late 70s. We still have 3. The Boulevard on the Kansas side and the I-70 in KCMO as well as the Twin in Independence.

Google maps it right when “Hickman Mills” is searched. This may had been in the town of Hickman Mills.

Look for the 1957 Robert Altman movie The Delinquents on the MGM Movie Channel – it was made on location around Kansas City, and one scene was shot at the Crest Drive-in.
