HEART DRIVE-IN Kansas City, Mo.

Representing an investment of almost one-quarter of a million dollars, this is the first outdoor theatre in the city limits of Kansas City.

One of the most striking features of this ozoner is the unique Cloverleaf style "entrance-exit" underpass which







was built right under the busy highway that adjoins the property.

The 50 by '70 foot screen made of porcelain enamel on steel, is said to be the largest one of its type ever made, and the first in the area.

Its large cafeteria style concession stand is capable of handling 500 in a normal 15 minute break.

Situated next to the concession building is the projection booth which is offe

Set from the screen about 10 degrees. To help get a clear, bright picture, lamps operating at 105 amperes are used. The projectors have a throw of 480 feet and supply a 66 foot picture.

The playground in front of the wooden screen tower is fenced in a bright red, yellow, and blue. As an

added inducement to lure the youngsters, the fencing is also decorated with

lollipops, candy canes and flowers.
