Kansas City has 2 operating that I know of. No clue of the names however, but its pretty cool to pass and still see them advertising.

There are still a few within an hour of Chicago, but nowhere near the number that existed in the 60's. There must be a few who still enjoy the experience. In the 80's I remember you would drive by a lot of abandoned ones. There was once a controversy over one that showed X-rated movies that could be seen from the highway.

I remember hearing about that one. I was living in Battle Creek, MI and getting over to the Chicago area on a regular basis back then.
