It was operated by Bob Capshaw and Andy Dietz. Andy Dietz was a buying and booking agent for Co-Operative Theatres.

A note in the July 30, 1955 Motion Picture Almanac suggests this drive-in opened that month. “Capshaw’s ‘Home of the Stars,’ a new drive-in theatre has just been opened at Chaffee, Mo., The layout includes a snack bar, carside service and a playground for the youngsters.”
