ST. LOUIS, MO -- Very soon you and your family will be able to take a trip down the Mother Road via the new documentary film, Show Me 66: Main Street Through Missouri.
The nearly 90-minute film was produced by the Missouri History Museum in conjunction with the museum's current exhibition Route 66: Mainstreet Through St. Louis. The film and exhibition mark the famous highway's 90th anniversary on November 11 of this year.
The film premieres to the public on Thursday, November 10 at 7 p.m. at the Missouri History Museum. But you can see a special sneak peak of the film's trailer, just released today.
Equal parts travelogue and historical narrative, Show Me 66: Main Street Through Missouri explores the landscapes and destinations found along Route 66 in the Show Me State. Stories unfold about the fabled route's birth in Springfield, its relationship to the Ozarks and St. Louis and the attractions, motels, drive-ins and characters discovered along its path.
