About Starlite Twin Drive-in

The Starlite Drive-in is Kansas's last remaining twin screen drive-in theater. It is also the state's largest remaining drive-in theater with a 1300 car capacity. The Starlite shows double features most nights with triple features shown on weekend nights. Audio is provided via FM radio broadcast as well as some traditional window speakers. The Starlite has recently revised its pet policy once again allowing dogs as long as they are well behaved and on a leash at all times while outside the car. After the summer of 2018, the owner of the Starlite announced he was closing the drive-in and was selling the land to a development company. However, the community and local government rallied to save the their iconic drive-in. A deal was almost reached when it was learned that the owner had already sold the digital projectors for the drive-in. Almost all hope was lost but at the last minute, an anonymous donor stepped in and purchased the land and is leasing it back to the new drive-in owner. So local government is providing a low interest $200,000 loan to purchase new projectors. So with the help of community fundraising (about $50,000 was raised from local donations), government support, the drive-in was saved and will hopefully be opened for years to come.
