Boxoffice, May 10, 1965: “Mr. and Mrs. Al Spargur, owners of the Grand Theatre (in Du Quoin IL), have reopened the former Melody Drive-In under the name of Holiday Drive-In. Located several miles south of Tamaroa, it has been closed since February for repairs and renovation. The concession stand and projection room have been remodeled and some new equipment added. Repairs have been made to the 45x80-foot screen. New lighting has been added to the entrance and speakers have been tuned and repaired.”
