Went there many times as a kid in the 50s and 60s….great times spent on the playground as the sun began to set and the screen flickered to life….

My brother and I started a group on Facebook dedicated to this drive-in. Had many good times there. Here’s the link to the group:

Incredible photo! I grew up there in the 60’s and never saw what the area across Route 66 looked like before they built Crestwwod Mall. I saw “Easy Rider” there!

Check out this posting to drive-ins.com that shows an ad from August of 1982 listing all Wehrenberg drive-ins at that time, including the 66:

The name of the poster is Tim Haye. Does anyone know if he posts on this site? If so, could someone tell him to post that ad on Cinema Treasures as well…along with any other old ads he might have scanned?

Last night of operation was October 17, 1993 with a bill of “The Program” and “The Good Son.”

We used to hang out there a lot in the mid-80s. We usually sat around in the back of a coworker’s pick up truck and drank beer, and we ignored some true drive in classic films: Nightmare on Elm Street, Basket Case, The Last Dragon…

If I could go back in time to 1985, one of the first things I would do is spend an evening at the ol' 66.

Though two of the three original occupants of the shopping center are now gone, occupancy has been back at 100% for about a year. A grocery store on the site has a facsimile of the old drive-in marquee marking its video rental department. I’d still rather have the drive-in, though!

Facility opened on Sept. 26, 1947.

Built by Flexer Drive-In Theatres, and operated by that firm the first season (which ended Nov. 10).

Fred Wehenberg bought the facility early in 1948, and then operated until closing.

The designer of the venue was William Mills.
