@Cholla: I know the I-44 was a storage lot for trucks and trailers for a while after it closed…and there may have been another business operating out of the lot for a while, but I don’t remember a swap meet ever being there. But that’s just my recollection…maybe someone else can confirm or set the record straight.

Piccione Enterprises…weren’t they the same family that ran the Varsity Theater in U City? I believe Wehrenberg did booking for that theater, as well as the Apollo when Grace Piccione operated that place.

I used to fight sleep driving home from a day at Six Flags St. Louis just to catch a glimpse of what was playing on this theatre’s screen.

Wasn’t it a flea market for a while?

From a drive-in to a garbage dump…that’s really really sad.

Drive-in was a joint operation between Wehrenberg Theatres and Piccione Enterprises.

Facility opened March 31, 1972.

The venue was designed by Gordon and Wilson.
