The next day on our little movie theater tour we traveled to the town of Lamar, Missouri. This town is known as the place where Harry S. Truman was born and you can take a tour of his house. Yes, we made a point to check that out, but our true reason was to visit the town’s two movie theaters - Plaza Theater and the Barco Drive-In.

The Barco is another drive-in frozen in time and again we watched a double feature and another viewing of the Hulk. (Glad we liked the Hulk)

Like the 66 Drive-In in Carthage this one is also well cared for and it was a pleasure visiting with the friendly folks who run this gem.

Tomorrow we’ll take a look at the Plaza Theater also located in Lamar.

Chris - Groovy indeed!

Kirk - I'm sure you'll put those colors to good use!
