The April 22, 1953 issue of the Exhibitor included “Charles Payson, Jr., Carol Drive-In, Carrollton, Mo.” in its list of visitors to Kansas City’s Film Row, so the drive-in must have opened by then.

This note from the Feb. 22, 1960 issue of BoxOffice is phrased as if the Carol had opened earlier: “Charles and Mildred Payson, who have the Carol Drive-In at Carrollton, were on (Film) Row recently with the word that they will open their drive-in for the summer on April 8.”

Boxoffice, May 30, 1960: “The reopened Carol Drive-In has undergone a face-lifting during recent weeks. A new tile floor on the concession stand, refinishing of the restrooms, several technical changes in booth equipment and a layer of new rock on the ramps and roadways have improved the situation.”

All traces of the drive in are gone. https://goo.gl/maps/uIPBJ
