Guess what Pleasant Prairie, your Outdoor Theater (which opened in 1949) is scheduled to close after this summer; guess who is looking into purchasing the empty lot – Walmart. Walmart Stores, Inc is reportedly looking at multiple locations in Pleasant Prairie to build a store.

Pleasant Prairie is prime real estate between two major cities for new, small businesses to set up shop. Studies have proven that Walmart is a small business killer, no one can compete with the cut throat competition that is Walmart. This will not encourage new business growth in the Village.

I went to the Keno recently. A small, but really nice drive-in. The last one in this area. Unfortunately, the movies “The Wicker Man” & “Accepted” stunk.

This is one of the last few drive-ins left in the southeastern Wisconsin/northeastern Illinois area.

The problem is that they sit on land that has risen in value so much, that either the real estate taxes will kill you, or the offers to buy the site are just to tempting.

The Keno has avoided this by quite frankly, sitting on land that was not as desirable as spots north and west. With a number of housing developments being built in the area, within the next couple of years the Keno may not last.

The screen has a huge whole in it. What’s up?

The Keno drive-in opened on May 18, 1949. It now stands as the oldest drive-in in the state. The theatre usually opens in early May and goes until a week or so after Labor Day. I always have a great time here and the food in the concession stand is awesome. Check out my website to find out how you can help with my Wisconsin Drive-in book project.
