when I came back in 1998 from skorea I know it was opened that summer remember seeing the ads in newspaper.And that was the last year opened. I was in Sedalia area from 85-95 I know that this was not opened at this time. Must reopened in summer 95-98. The drive in theater was located about mile east of the Tyson chicken plant. and was actually 2.5 west of Sedalia city limits

This drive-in managed to go through three names in about six years. From the Sedalia Democrat:

May 24, 1995: Ad says “Don’t Miss This Opening Weekend” May 26-28, showing Tall Tale and Man of the House.

May 31, 1998: The Diamond Drive-In opened in 1995, but is now known as the Starzz Drive-In. “Michael Lentz of Sedalia bought the drive-in with other investors in January. To date, the marquee fronting Route MM still says Diamond.”

Spot checks: The Starzz Drive-In advertised in July 1998 and July 1999. Sedalia Drive-In, “2 mi. west of Sedalia off Hwy. 50”, advertised in July 2000. I couldn’t find a drive-in ad in July 2001.

Sep. 12, 2002: Effects of the “Diamond Drive-Inn”, including the screen and “large sign with arrow in front of theatre”, were to be auctioned off on Sept. 20, 2002.
