Cinema St. Louis is excited to partner with the Hi-Pointe Drive-In to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day on Monday, Sept. 18, at the Hi-Pointe Theatre with a special screening of the 1997 cult classic, GOOD BURGER.
Join the Hi-Pointe Drive-In, everyone’s favorite local burger joint, for incredible food specials throughout the day (see below for the themed-menu) and get your picture taken with the original Good Burger car at their McCausland location.
Then, walk up to the iconic Hi-Pointe Movie Theatre for a 7 p.m. screening of the 1997 film “Good Burger,” a story about two hapless youths who lead their burger joint in a fight against the giant fast-food chain across the street. This film will surely entertain and stars Kel Mitchell, Kenan Thompson, and Sinbad, dishing up some of the best laughs around.
The Hi-Pointe Theater will give $2 off a ticket with proof of food purchase or your best Good Burger car photo at the Hi-Pointe Drive-In.
“We will be slangin’ burger and shake specials of course as well as selling exclusive merch and opening up the OG Goodburger car and letting y’all get in and take pics! Come by for a burg and then hop over to the theatre for a show,” Hi-Pointe Drive-In said on their Facebook page.

Cinema St. Louis / Hi-Pointe Theatre
For more than 30 years, Cinema St. Louis (CSL) has served as the region’s go-to arts nonprofit for educating and inspiring audiences of all ages through film. Annually, the organization hosts the St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF) — included among USA Today’s 10 Best “Film Festivals Worth Traveling To” — as well as the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase, QFest St. Louis, Classic French Film Festival, and Golden Anniversaries. In January 2023, CSL found its new home in the iconic Hi-Pointe Theatre, a beautiful art-deco palace for film with the best popcorn in town.
The Hi-Pointe has been an iconic St. Louis destination ever since this spot was a little drive-in in the 1980’s. Located in the historic Hi-Pointe neighborhood, just off Highway 40, this spot is a great place to pop into before or after events around town, or even as the main event. Their chef-inspired menu uses locally sourced ingredients and has something for folks from many walks of life, from their creative burgers, sandwiches, and shakes to healthy salads and a menu for the little ones. Following the tradition of killin’ it, Hi-Pointe Drive-In is brought to you by your friends from Sugarfire Smokehouse, among a few of your other favorite eateries.
