Information for this tour was contributed by Darren Snow.

The Car-Breeze was so named because it was located between Carlyle and Breese on Highway 50. After it closed, the screen was demolished and old farm implements were stored on the site. Tall weeds grew around the projection booth, and a local business attached a plywood sign to the old marquee. Recently [2002], the plywood sign disappeared -- along with most of the farm implements -- and the weeds were whacked enough to allow a peek into the old concession stand. It's pretty much a mess, with marquee letters and trash strewn about the floor, but the theater's name still appears on the snack bar.
