B & B Twin Drive-In

The Twin Drive-In screens a double bill on each of its two screens. The two screens have a total capacity of 1,400 cars. There are late shows on Friday and Saturday with a repeat screening of the first feature. Audio is provided through FM radio.

The Twin Drive-In was operated by the independent Globe Cinemas company and operates during summer months. It was taken over by B & B Theatres in 2015.

Globe operates the Twin now. It’s on 291 Hwy and Kentucky Rd. so that address sounds right. The address above is for the old Independence Square theater, which is now called the Pharoah.

My 1969 IMPA erroneously lists the “Twin I & II” under Kansas City MO, capacity 1700. That error persisted through at least the 1976 edition. The 1982 edition was more accurate, listing it in Independence with 2 x 850 capacity.
