The Broadway Drive-In was the only ozoner within the city limits of St. Louis. Opened on May 30, 1954 with Gary Cooper in “Return to Paradise” & John Payne in “99 River Street”. The Broadway Drive-In had a 550 car capacity.
It was located on S. Broadway right next to the City workhouse. (Part of the St. Louis Jail System) Tuesday night was buck night whereby admission was 1 or a carload for $1.00.
The Broadway Drive-In was closed in October 1964 and was demolished to make way for Interstate 55 as it made its way through the city. From the back side of the drive-in you could look out and see the Mississippi River.
A strip shopping center replaced the drive-in and the old city workhouse. It has a Walgreens Drug Store and had a super market that is now a Big Lots Closeout Store.
