Clark 54 Drive-In

Opened in 1952, the Clark 54 (named for its location along Route 54) accomodates about 300 cars. Though it went through a period of decline for years, the drive-in was acquired by new owners in 2001, who have done some major upgrading and refurbishment to this popular west-central Illinois ozoner, including a remodeled snack area, restrooms and a new picnic area. The Clark’s season runs from May-September. It never reopened for the 2014 season due to lack of digital projection.

Operated by the Armentrout Circuit in 1963.

This is the same drive-in as the Summer Hill Drive In, which is listed separately, as being in Pittsfield IL. It is in Summer Hill IL, not Rockport or Pittsfield.

Just south of town on Hwy 54 in Summer Hill.

Closed and for sale as of spring 2014. They tried to win the contest for a digital system with no luck, probably the main reason for closing and sale.

Map shows this location as being roughly halfway between IL 96 at Atlas, IL and Mississippi River where highway crosses to Louisiana, MO. Clark 54 is actually NE of IL 96, much closer to Summer Hill.
