Was a really good deal to go to the State Twin…..used to go nearly every week.

The State was built as a twin screen Drive in. It was nearly identical to the Twin, North Twin and South Twin. And similar to the I70. All of these theaters were operated by Mid America Cinemas.

Approx. address for this drive-in was 5041 State Avenue. Now Car Hop. This one was massive as judged by the yard south of this location.

Yet another now-defunct KC-area drive-in. Sat next to the old Indian Springs Mall.
