The 40 Hiway Drive-In opened May 14, 1942. The single screen drive-in listed the car capacity at 750. It was initially owned by Mr. Philip Smith and later by Kansas City Outdoor Theatre Corp. The 40 Hiway Drive-In was open at least into the early-1990’s.

Old Time Pottery is on the wrong side of the road. If you do an aerial of US 40 & 71 Bypass the outline of the drive-in is still there.
