In Camden, the Malco Theatre Circuit had operated the Mesa Drive-In (1953-1960) and, very briefly, the Camden Drive-In (1955). By the decade’s end, they tried once more with the Razorback Drive-In which launched May 1, 1969. Opening films were “Did You Hear About the One About the Traveling Saleslady” and “The Shakiest Gun in the West”. The manager was Dick Fenwick.

On March 4, 1970, the screen was destroyed in a storm but was rebuilt. Malco would close the drive-in and it would be demolished. There’s was a car dealership in the 21st Century roughly in the spot of the former drive-in.

The site of the Razorback Drive-In is clearly visible in aerial photos from 1949 & 1963. It should be easy to conclude that the Camden Drive-In was reopened by Malco and renamed the Razorback Drive-In, and that they were both at the same location.

The front ramps are still clearly visible on Google Earth.
