There were 105 drive-in theaters within a couple of miles of Route 66. Join drive-in historian Michael Kilgore on a historic trip down the Mother Road, as he presents the sometimes quirky story of each and every ozoner along the way.

Packed with dozens of photos and details never before printed in any book, Drive-Ins of Route 66 is a must for any drive-in enthusiast or Route 66 fan.

"The famed Route 66 is a road well travelled over many years. Stretching across eight states, along the way it has housed motels and diners with their iconic neon signs, many of which have previously been recorded in books. Now author and researcher Michael Kilgore brings to life another aspect of the Mother Road: the Drive-In Movie Theatre. These were popular for several decades, and there are still a small number still in operation. Michael takes us on a journey, state by state, through small towns to the larger cities and their suburbs. Over 100 drive-in theatres are given a well-researched individual appraisal, from their inception and life, giving pleasures to tens of thousands, leading to (in many cases) their sad demise. An added pleasure for the reader is the inclusion of photographs which show the individuality of many of the drive-In theatres featured.

"So make yourself comfortable, open the pages and allow Michael, as your driver and guide, to take you on wonderful journey of exploration, to experience what pleasures could (and still can) be had beneath a starlite sky." - Ken Roe, Theatre Editor, Cinema Treasures
