Sikeston Drive-In

The Sikeston Drive-In Theatre opened on July 23, 1949. The parking ramp could hold 450 cars and was competed at a cost of $125,000.00. It was operated by O.W. McCutcheon who also owned the Malone Theatre in Sikeston. I believe it closed in the mid-1960’s. If anybody has any information about the Sikeston Drive-In Theatre please comment.

The Sikeston Drive-In was still listed as open in 1967.

The July 23, 1949 issue of BoxOffice verified the opening date and added more details:

SIKESTON, MO. – O. D. Clayton, local automobile dealer, was to open his 400-car drive-in adjacent to Highways 60 and 61 Saturday (23). Associated with Clayton in the Sikeston Drive-In are S. Potashnick and M. Ralph. This is the second drive-in in the Sikeston area to open for the 1949 season. Earl Ferrell of Charleston, Mo., opened his drive-in near here July 1.
