40 Hiway Drive-In

Viewing: Photo | Street View

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 mid-1980’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.

The address listed is incorrect. There are ads that state this Drive-in was at I-40 and Noland Road on the web.

The correct address for this Drive-in given aerials at the time the Drive-in was open should be:

14201 E US Hwy 40, Kansas City, MO 64136.

Please update.

The Drive-in in the map given is not the 40 Hiway. Sorry Chris. The shopping center overtook the Drive-in. There is no trace of it.

I’m pretty sure it closed sometime in the early to mid 80s. There was already a strip mall or shopping center on the site by 1990.
