The St. Ann Drive-In opened in June 1951 as a four-screen theatre, and was operated by Arthur Theatres. It had a capacity of 1,000 cars. It was located a few blocks from the Airway Drive-In. The drive-in itself was located in a valley behind retail stores that lined the Rock Road. The only thing visible from the Rock Road was the large marquee and the entrance that led to the theatre. This was the first big multi-screen in the St. Louis area.
When Arthur Theatres went bankrupt, Wehrenberg took over operations of the St. Ann, putting it in direct competition with its own Airway Drive-In. The St. Ann usually played the same double bill program on two screens leaving you with a choice of two programs.
The drive-in was closed in the 1980’s and was later demolished to make way for a shopping center.
