There’s a nice YouTube video of how the Pine Hill looked as of summer 2017. The land slopes nicely toward the screen, and it looks like someone could reopen it with just a smidgen of cleanup. And a digital projector. A Jan. 3, 2018 post on Facebook said, “Still have not sold!!! If you’re seriously interested in purchasing, message us.”

The 1955-56 Theatre Catalog listed the owner as A. B. Jefferis, capacity just 200. Its first appearance in the Motion Picture Almanacs was the 1957 edition, same owner, capacity 300. It stayed that way through 1966. Jefferis also owned the indoor theater in Piedmont.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on March 23, 1973 that one Mrs. Maude Jefferis of Piedmont photographed odd blinking lights “high above the drive-in movie screen that stands beyond a pond in Mrs. Jefferis’s front yard.” That must be the adjacent house east of the Pine Hill.

When the MPA resumed owner info in 1978, it was listed as Bazzell, capacity 200. For the 1980-88 editions, the owner was L. Ross.

Status should be closed. According to their Facebook page, they decided not to reopen because of extensive vandalism.
