Viewing: Photo | Street View

One of several Peoria area drive-ins, most of which were part of the Kerasotes chain, the Holiday opened in 1965. It could accomodate about 1200 cars. The drive-in closed by the mid-80s and was demolished in the early 90s to make way for a shopping center.

I think the Holiday was partially destroyed due to a tornado in the mid-80’s. Not sure when it was completely razed though.

The address on this one is not right. I do not know what it was I beleive it was at the junction of US 150 and SR 91 (now hotels) I am definitely certain it was not in the middle of downtown Peoria as the address listed would place it.

Approx. location for this drive-in is now 5101 W Holiday Drive. It will map correctly to where the theatre stood. Now a shopping center.
