Based on some of the newspaper ads posted here, plus the following magazine clip, it appears that the drive-in dropped the hyphen by the 1960s, becoming the Rimar. I would rename the listing according to that final version of the name, leaving Ri-Mar as an alternate.

Also, Google Maps shows the old Rimar site outside the Orlando city limits. That would explain why it was described as being in Lockhart, a nearby census-designated place.

Boxoffice, Aug. 17, 1964: “Dixie Drive-In Theatres has taken over booking duties for the Rimar Drive-In at Lockhart, formerly booked by C. H. Deaver.”

The above address maps more accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is visible on Google Earth using historic aerial imagery.
