There’s a nice 1968 photo of the Augusta at VintageAerial.com.

A more accurate address for this theater is 2830 Ohio St. Augusta KS 67010. This points directly to the entrance road. Now White Eagle Credit Union. Some ramps are visible.

Please update.

The drive in was run by Mrs. D.A. (Aline) Bisagno. When Aline was older, her son Bob Bisagno ran both the theater and the drive in. I worked at this drive in for two summers (72-3), and in the downtown theater in the winter.

I started at the front gate, and later worked in the concession stand. I also helped build a wall on the Augusta side, because light from new housing developments were interfering with viewing movies.

Sometime in the late 70s or 80s the screen blew over—the supports were all wood. It was replaced with a steel supported screen.

I still remember the intermission music, and some of the commercials for local businesses that were run during intermission.
