PLEASE CHANGE ADDRESS TO:

Thank You

Frontenac is the town right next door to the north of Pittsburg.

You can clearly see the remains of the old Pittsburg Drive-In in the Google Photo.

How do I know it’s the Pittsburg Drive-In? Somewhere I saw an areial photo of the drive-in and somewhere I read that the drive-in was 3 miles north of Pittsburg. I sure that’s it.

What do you think?

The above information is correct, Dickinson was always proud of this drive-in, as they talked about it alot. They also had an indoor theatre in Pittsburg and owned several indoor and drives ins, in and around the Joplin Missouri area just across the state line. Eventually they built a theatre in the mall, which is now apart of Showplex Cinemas.
