The 66 Park-In opened on September 26, 1947 with Robert Young in “Lady Luck”. It was operated by Flexer Drive-In Theatres but was taken over the following season by Wehrenberg Theatres, which operated it until its closure. The 66 Park-In had a capacity of 800 cars.
Located on the Historic Highway 66, this drive-in was one of the first operated by Wehrenberg. It was a popular mainstay in the St. Louis area. It had the large playground like all other Wehrenberg drive-in theatres situated in front of the screen.
When you went into the drive-in, you were greeted with miles of neon lining the back side of the screen facing Watson Road (Highway 66) with the name of the theatre spelled out. It had a large concession area with four stations for quick service.
Sadly, the 66-Park-In closed on October 17, 1993 and was demolished in 1994 to make way for a shopping center.
