Don't forget there's one on the south side of Kenosha, WI, as well. There are also drive-in theaters in West Chicago, IL(Cascade Drive-In), Earlville, IL(34 Drive-In), and Valparaiso, IN(49er Drive-In). I thought there was one in operation in one of the smaller towns not in Waukesha County between Milwaukee and Madison as well?

The one I was most fond of when I was a kid, the Twin Drive-In in Wheeling, IL(and actually a 3 screen drive-in, since it added one more screen at some point), closed down after the 1995 season for good. I'll never forget seeing both Waterworld, and sneaking over with my brother to another theater to see the R rated Mortal Kombat(lmao, this is despite that I was just 13, and my brother 10, at the time!), while my parents stayed to watch whatever movie played after Waterworld. Ah, how much I love drive-in theaters, and how badly I'd love to go back to one again either next summer or in 2013, after 16+ years of not having a chance to go to one....

There are 3 in the Kansas City Metro, 1 on the Kansas side and 2 on the Missouri side. We might have the most per capita in the country

Funny it's always seemed like Ohio and Pennsylvania have the most of any state, whenever I've checked the site drive-ins.com. Indiana has a higher than average number, and so do a few other states. IIRC, New Jersey once had a very high number(one of the highest in the country at the peak of drive-in popularity), but now it's down to one in southern NJ that reopened a few years ago.

Be lucky the KC area has 3, there are enough bigger metropolitan areas that have none, or 1-2 at most on the extreme fringes(or sometimes outside) of their metro area....
