News About This Theater
- Jan 1, 2007 — Bel-Air Drive-In to be demolished for a shopping center
Opened as a single screen on March 2, 1956 with Marlon Brando in “Guys and Dolls” & Clayton Moore in “The Lone Ranger”. The Bel-Air Drive-In added a second screen a few weeks later which was located on the rear of the opening screen. A 3rd screen was added in 1979, with a capacity for around 1,000 cars, one of the larger outdoor theatres in Illinois.
The Bel-Air Drive-In typically screened double-features, and was one of only a few drive-ins in the US to feature two-sided screens, enabling the theatre to show two different double bills at once.
Last operated by Loews Cineplex, the Bel-Air Drive-In has been closed since September 17, 2000 and has since been demolished.
