LAMAR, Mo. — A Southwest Missouri outdoor theater is forced to push back plans to reopen after a crucial piece of equipment breaks down.
The Barco Drive-In in Lamar planned to reopen for business on Friday.
Now, that’s being moved back at least a week after learning the theater needs updated wiring along with a new projector.
The drive-in originally had to shut down two weeks ago when the projector broke.
The theater didn’t have the $48,000 needed to upgrade.
A fundraising drive raised enough money to order the replacement.
Workers are now focusing on electrical changes in the hopes of restarting the season July 3rd.
