There are still some stores there, Family Dollar, Subway, Radio Shack, Hardees, etc. The Hollywood/Blockbuster video is out of business. Also a new O'Reilly’s Auto Parts has just been built close to the Big Lots building, which is still unoccupied.

Some corrections are needed:

1) The Broadway Drive-In was not the only ozoner within the St. Louis city limits. The THUNDERBIRD, at Natural Bridge and Goodfellow, also qualifies.

2) The Broadway was not built by Mid-America. The venue, which opened in May 1954, was a Ray Parker operation. Parker, then mayor of the suburb of Brentwood, also was involved with the Skyline Drive-In in Bridgeton.

3) The Broadway was always the Broadway. It was never known as the Holiday, which was an operation in the county on Page (and a Mid-America operation).

Place was built in the mid 50’s and was originally called the Holiday drive in. Owned by the mid-america theatre chain, Louis and Jules Jablanow.
