MACON, MO — According to this report in Macon’s Chronicle-Herald newspaper, the Macon Drive-In will not open due to recent storm damage to the theater’s screen tower.

I am so sorry to hear that the Macon Drive-In has closed. But, I understand the need to retire when it is time. As Bop Hope said so many time, and probably right there on the big Macon Drive-In screen, “Thanks for the Memories.” What a wonderful thing to make money doing something you love while giving pleasure to so many other people.
It is sad to see this happen. Hopefully, someone can buy the property and reopen it.
