Veteran Warrenton, Missouri movie-man William Zimmerman launched the Moto-Vu Drive-In Theatre on August 17, 1950. “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” opened the drive-in.

The address for the drive-in is 101 E Veterans Memorial Pkwy, Warrenton, MO.

Today, the property is empty and there is virtually no trace that a drive-in ever existed in that location.

The address listed is incorrect.

Entrance is now Auto Zone at this address.

Please update.

I’ve literally driven past this spot hundreds of times and never realized there was once a drive-in there.

Actually appears to have closed after the 1965 season.
