Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Centralia Drive-In, located on West Broadway, opened on April 20 1950, with space for 530 cars. It was designed and operated by Elbert W. Butler & Homer S. Butler Jr.

Later it was operated by the BAC Theatres chain. After closing, it was torn down, and a K-Mart was built on the site. The store has been closed for a couple of years now.

The K-Mart building is also being restored into a home-improvement store (local, not a chain!). And the Historic Illinois Theater in Centralia is being restored to use, by the city.

When did this drive-in close? I can only ever remember the K-Mart store being there along with Kroger, Country Fair and Priced Right supermarkets attached to it.
