Previous Names: Starlite Drive-In
The Rustic Starlite, also known as just the Starlite Drive-In, opened in June 1950, and was located along Route 40 East in Effingham. The drive-in could accomodate 400 cars, and was part of the Frisina Amusements chain. It closed in the early-1980’s, and has since been demolished to make way for a construction company.
Its classic lightbulb-studded marquee was saved, however, and moved to an auto dealership in Effingham, which it still stands in front of today, used for advertising.
