Mountain Grove Drive-In

The Autovue 60 Drive-In opened in July 1952. The car capacity was listed at 300. It was renamed the Mountain Grove Drive-In in the early-1970’s. The drive-in was owned by Edgar Agae. It was still listed as open in the late-1970’s. Most of its life the people called it the ‘60 Drive-In’, being located on State Street which is Highway 60 thus it got its common name of the ‘60 Drive-In’.

Here is a view of the drive in today.

The screen is partially there.

The old marquee out front says Hills Flea Market. Address 10366 US 60 Business. Using that address it maps right to the old drive-in.
