The editors messed up the spelling of Magee, but some of the other info checks out.

Boxoffice, Nov. 11, 1950: “MAGEEHE, MISS. - The Mageehe Drive-In at Mageehe, Miss., has opened under the management of Mrs. H. A. Everett. Motiograph sound, projectors and lighting equipment was installed by the Hodges Theatre Supply Co. The new outdoor cost about $75,000. Mrs. Everett also is owner of another theatre here.”
