The 600-car French Village Drive-In in East St Louis, Missouri epitomised the state-of-the-art of drive-in movie theatres when it opened in 1942. Fifty years later when the drive-in closed, both East St Louis and America in general had gone through a whole lot of changes, not all of them positive. The theatre was demolished in 2005 (image via Antique Warehouse and Preservation Research Office)
