Starlite Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Starlite Drive-In was opened June 28, 1956 by the Schnee brothers who also owned the Hollywood Theater and the Vogue Theater, both indoor theaters. They ran all the theaters until they were sold to the Lutz family in 1976.

By this time the Vogue Theater was closed. The Starlite Drive-In was closed after the 1981 season and sat empty and decaying until it was sold in 1998 to a Minneapolis man who reopened it in the middle of that summer.

Since then, it has re-opened while restoration has been slowly progressing and 3 more screens have popped up on the property, making it now a 4 screen drive-in.

Above address is incorrect. The address for this drive-in was 28334 Minnesota 22. THIS POINTS DIRECTLY TO THE DRIVE-IN ENTRANCE…

According to their website the address is 28264 Minnesota hwy 22 so the address in the header is correct. Also on their website they only show four screens.
