The 270 Drive-In opened September 1, 1965 with Peter O'Toole in “Lord Jim”, James Stewart in “Dear Brigitte” & Cliff Robertson in “Masquarade”. It was operated by Arthur Theatres with a capacity of 1,200 cars making it the largest drive-in in the St. Louis area. Located on Dunn Road and West Florissant Avenue just off I-270, its large marquee with the yellow tower and flashing red ball on top was visible for miles coming up and down the interstate. It was equipped with 70mm & 35mm projectors.
This was one of the last theatres that the Arthurs operated when they went into financial dificulties and finally went out of business. It was demolished in 1981 to make way for the Clock Tower Shopping Center.
