On July 4, 1953, BoxOffice reported: “Newest addition to the open-air theaters in this area is the Frontier Drive-In, located just across a bridge on Highway 92 west of Knoxville. Operated by the Kerr Theatre, the theatre opened for business June 26, 1953. The building which houses restrooms, concession stand, projection room and storage space, resembles a log stockade. Space for 425 cars is available.”
That bridge was the one over White Breast Creek, and the Frontier Drive-In was south of old Iowa Highway 92, now McGregor Road. The current Iowa 92 cuts across what was the back of the viewing area. Nothing remains of the Frontier Drive-In today.
