Opened in 1953, the Parkade Drive-In was located along what was originally Highway 40 (Now Business Loop 70) on the northwest edge of Columbia. The theatre was situated in a depression with the screen facing south. I attended two films there, “No Time For Sergeants” and “The Ten Commandments”, in the late-1950’s.

The construction of Interstate 70 took place a few yards north of the screen and was probably responsible for the drive-in’s closing. A few years later construction began on Parkade Plaza, which now sits where the drive-in was located.

The map is incorrect; it looks like the peg is at 601 East, and should be 601 West, which places it near Parkade Blvd.

It parked 410 cars and was owned in 1956 by Herbert Jones.
