Boxoffice, Aug. 27, 1955: “TUPELO, MISS. - The new Lee Drive-In here has been opened by owners Joe Chambers and Frank Heard. Construction was started on the 400-car situation last October, but opening was delayed until August because of rains and other obstacles. The Lee is the only home-owned theatre in Tupelo.”

The Lee Drive-In was actually twinned in the early-to-mid 1970s.
