5700 North Belt West, Belleville, IL, 62226 / Cake artist: Ray Harvey
One of the biggest family places in the Metro East area is Skyview Drive In! It is the only remaining drive-in movie theater in the St. Louis area. (This does not count the one in Litchfield, IL) Usually the theater shows double-feature movies, mostly first-run and on occasion, the classics! The show starts as soon as the sun goes down. You can hear the movie by listening to a radio station only accessible in your car.
The Skyview Drive-In is open from April to October (obviously when warm weather occurs), and it is considered a great family outing. With their double-features they try to put the same genre together. The drive-in opened in 1949, and a second screen was added in 1982. In the 66 years it has been in operation, it has suffered a couple times with hazardous weather damage (tornado and wind storm).
