Midwest Living Review

After 60 years, Boulevard Drive-In movie theater still offers great outdoor entertainment.

Babies to seniors enjoy "old-time" entertainment at this classic Kansas City, Kansas, drive in, which has shown movies on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings for 60 years. Take cash for $8 admission to two first-run movies. You'll also need cash for the self-serve concession stand, which offers popcorn, ice cream, burgers, corn dogs, cheap beer and some really addictive jalapeo poppers.Parking spots on the partially paved lot disappear quickly. Find a good one by about 8:30, before the sun goes down and the movies start. Many customers also bring lawn chairs. A terrific sound system broadcasts from pole-mounted speakers, enhanced by turning the car stereo to a designated frequency. Before show time, enjoy "oldies" with Wolfman Jack. Founders Wes and Mazie Neal are still there for many shows, selling commemorative T-shirts to their fans and hosting a Labor Day Rat-Rod car show.
