Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Owen Drive-In is Missouri’s smallest drive-in and is an old solo screen, grass field with a capacity at almost 80 cars. It has been in operation since 1950 when George Owen opened it with a capacity for 150 cars. The Owen Drive-In was open seasonally from April thru September.

It was closed in 2013 upon the death of Harold Owen.

I went to this drive-in and saw “Spider-Man 2” on July 18,2004. For a fifty-five year-old drive-in, it’s very well maintained and with good FM sound in your car. Lately, it’s been open almost yearly.
