"Growing up, I never missed a movie, till I was probably 25." The Star-Vu Drive-in may have the best view in all of El Dorado, standing high above the town for more than 60 years.
And Fred Kropf has been there for virtually all of them. "They come from all around. They come from Augusta, Eureka and Potwin and all around, anywhere from 30 miles around to come to it, but it's not like it used to be."
His family has owned the land the drive-in is on since the theater's start. But this season it sits empty, without anyone to lease it and run it.
