I have grown up in Lee's Summit. As a child i remember a Drive In on the corner of Oldham Pkwy & south 291 Hwy.

The current business that is there, Adessa Auto Auction. Jefferson street runs along the east side of their property.

It could have had possibly 2 screens? My parents have said it closed sometime in the late 60's. They say it was showing "questionable movies" :(

Does anyone in lee's summit or kcmo remember this? Does anyone even know the name of the old Drive In??

Does anyone have any old pics of this? You and i could exchange address so i could copy the old pics and sent originals back to you.
