Now Ronnie’s Plaza. Includes Ronnie’s Cine with IMAX.

The address for this Drive-in is 5262 Lindbergh Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63126.

TGIF is next to where the entrance stood. The 20 screen indoor theater is to the east of where the concession stand was located.

Please update.

The proper spelling of the venue includes an apostrophe…it should be Ronnie’s. Fred Wehrenberg named the drive-in after his grandson, Ronald Krueger.

Opened: July 15, 1948.
Last night of operation: September 12, 1982.
Screen tower pulled down August 2nd, 1983 with a shopping center soon to be built on the land. By this time, Ronnie had grown up and was president of Wehrenberg Theatres. He said at the occasion: “My first job working in the theatre business was here at Ronnie’s, running the minature train.”

Another source has this drive-in located in Sappington, which is zip code 63126. As that source also mentions a 1948 opening, my hunch is that this drive-in was on some land contiguous with the two cities.
