  • Description - Midway Drive-In Theatre

    The Midway Drive-In opened in 1950 in Sterling, Illinois and has been in continuous operation ever since. The Midway Drive-In is a genuine historical landmark as it is home to the oldest standing Drive-In screen in Illinois. We are dedicated to preserving this Dixon Illinois and Sterling Illinois historical landmark and paying tribute to the American tradition of the Drive-In Theatre. The Midway is a beautiful Drive-In. From the classic retro 'spaceship' ticket booth, to the Playground for the kiddies in front of the screen, to the full service concession stand, a trip to the Midway is like entering a time capsule to the 1950’s. The spacious Midway Drive-In parking lot can hold up to 500 cars. The Midway screen is a GIANT 90 feet across, giving a massive film presentation. After dusk, the stars can clearly be seen, and depending on the weather, major star constellations (such as the Big Dipper) may be visible. There is nothing more beautiful than watching a film under the stars.
