The Camden Drive-In on Magnolia Highway launched on September 9, 1949 with “Ma and Pa Kettle”. The Malco Theatre Circuit would then open the competing Mesa Drive-In Theatre opening on April 29, 1953.

In 1955, the Camden Drive-In installed a new curved screen to show CinemaScope and other widescreen formatted films. Malco would buy the Camden Drive-In during the 1955 season keeping both for a short period before closing it and retaining the Mesa Drive-In through 1960. The Malco Circuit then opened the Razorback Drive-In Theatre in 1969.
