Welcome to the Egyptian Drive-in in Herrin, IL. This majestic drive-in theater is known to have the world's largest screen.

Well, at least it used to. This ozoner was in the process of being demolished in the Summer of '03. Yes, yet another classic drive-in theater has now left the property. The place has been cleared and is now part of the airport's expansion.

The Airway Centre is a rather eye-catching sign out in St. Louis county. If this marquee looks familiar, it's because it was once the main sign for the Airway Drive-in Theatre in Saint Ann. This drive-in lasted for over 30 years and closed down sometime in the 80's.

Located in a very picturesque setting, the Sundance Kid Drive-in is a great place to catch an open-air movie.
