The Car-Breeze was so named because it was located between Carlyle and Breese on Highway 50. After it closed, the screen was demolished and old farm implements were stored on the site. Tall weeds grew around the projection booth, and a local business attached a plywood sign to the old marquee. Recently [2002], the plywood sign disappeared — along with most of the farm implements — and the concession booth was recently demolished. It could hold up to 200 cars.

That’s exactly where it was. There are 4 concrete pieces in the ground that used to support the movie screen. This was all before my time, I’m only 30 years old, but I remember the concession stand as it basically sat in the middle of a field (little did I know it used to be an old drive-in theater!

Interesting name.

It was in between the towns of Carlyle and Breese – hence the name Car-Breez. ;–)
