The Cinema 248 Drive-In was different from the Branson Drive-In, which opened by 1955 and closed by 1969. The Branson was on Highway 76 west of town.

The June 23, 1974 Springfield Leader and Press reported: “BRANSON – Clemenson Enterprises, Inc., operated by Kon and Debbie Clemenson, have opened the Cinema 248 Drive-In Movie Theater on Taney County 248 north of here”.

The 1977-82 MPAs listed the Cinema 248 Drive-In, 1100 W Highway 76 (probably its mailing address), capacity 250, owner Kambeitz. It fell off the list in 1983.

I just uploaded the aerial photo of the Cinema 248’s likely location. It’s just west of Highway 248 at the present-day 134 Depew Dr, Branson, MO 65616.
