Lamar: Barco Movie Drive-In

If you’re thinking of offering your children or grandchildren an evening out and the opportunity to share a memory from the good ole days , The Barco Drive-In Theatre  will bring back memories of the days when Butler offered an “ Outdoor Movie Theatre” for Citizens of Bates County.

We are talking about the Barco Drive-in located in Lamar Missouri. In the summer of 1949 construction of the new Barco Starvu Drive-In was underway in Lamar . On April 28, 1950 the first movie “The Nevadian ”was shown.

 Later the name of the outdoor drive-in was changed to the Barco Drive-In. The Barco is one of the longest, continuously running Drive-In Movie Theatres in the country.

Fm-92 introduces this Drive-In Theatre to our Bargain Buy Shopping Show. The outdoor Drive-In offers double features every Friday and Saturday night.

Admission for adults is only $8.00 and children ages 3-11 are admitted for $4.00. The Barco Drive-In Movie Theatre is located at 57 SE 25th Lane in Lamar. Show times vary but are usually on by 8:15 every Friday and Saturday nights . The Barco Box Office and snack bar opens at 7:45. See them on facebook at: Barco Drive-In .

Movie tickets are available from the FM-92 Bargain Buy Shopping Show or from the studios of FM-92 at 800 east Nursery Street in Butler. For ½ price ticket information call 660-679-4191
