A new owner by the start of the 1960 season, per Boxoffice, May 2 that year: “Ed Harris opened the Edgewood Drive-In at Neosho April 14 and closed the Orpheum downtown house.”

I wonder why the Carmar didn’t open on schedule, as elaborated in the June 3, 1950 issue of BoxOffice:

NEOSHO, MO. – Hugh Gardner will open a 225-car drive-in one mile south of Neosho on Highway 71 which leads into Camp Crowder. The opening is scheduled for July 1 to coincide with the 30th anniversary date on which Gardner took over the old Whiteway Theatre, which was renamed the Orpheum. Besides the Orpheum he now operates the Band Box. Harley Fryer, who has been manager of the city theatres for seven years, also will manage the new drive-in.

One of the rare “Architectural Styles – Colonial” for a drive-in. See photos.
