Next groovy Independence spot

This is the famous Twin Drive In. It gets it's name for obvious reasons...Two screens one at each end. This is the place I saw Hard Day's Night, Help, Magical Mystery Tour, and Yellow Submarine all in one night. My poor parents took me, although they were bored..and my Mom was laying in the back seat sick. All the people I knew grew up watching movies, etc..at this place. The cool thing is, it pretty much looks the same. I am still wondering, though, why, when my date took me to see "Closed for Winter"...we never did see the movie??

Oh my goodness. We went to both of these theaters as a kid. I remember driving in our 1969 VW bug to the Englewood to see one of the Love Bug films, and I think we saw almost every Disney film at the Twin. My folks would load us up in the station wagon, we'd usually make it through the feature, and then we'd fall asleep in the back as my folks watched the rest of the movie! I grew up in Independence and really enjoy your musings.

ThankS Elegant Thrifter. I am so honored you stopped by my little blog long enough to actually post. I love your book, and wanted to see you at Luticia Clementines, but had to work! I just started to think about all the really great places still operate around our little town! Please come back and visit! Zootsuitmama
