11.03.2018 | 2018 SLIFF – An Illustrated History of St. Louis Drive-In Movie Theaters | Free

November 3, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Categories: Film


During the heyday of drive-in movies — from the 1950s through the ’70s — St. Louisans flocked to outdoor theaters such as the 66 Park-in, the Airway Twin, and the Holiday. Sadly, those venues are long gone, but Tom Stockman, editor of the website We Are Movie Geeks, will take the audience on a nostalgic trip back in time with an illustrated lecture about the St. Louis area’s many drive-in theaters. The talk will include hundreds of drive-in images that Stockman has collected, and he’ll discuss the venues’ histories, recall the movies that played on their screens, and recount some of his own drive-in memories.
