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

6I was told new owner bought it in auction at Court House for back taxes. Rumor has it there fixing it up to open back as a tavern.
I have solved the address debate the actual address was 1206 Alabama. The street Parkview was a street that ran along side of Alabama with about only 8-10 ft separation between the 2 streets. The Mailbox for mail delivery was located on Parkview Street this address of 1526 Parkview was only used for Mail delivery and Newspaper Adds.

Joe I went to a Facebook site called St Joseph Mo Past, Present and Future asking anyone who remembers anything about the King Theater. So keep checking with site for added responses.
Joe you could be right but I talked to my dad who went to several movies at the King Theater. He told me it was torn down to complete the East side intersection of King Hill + Alabama, that it use to be a T type intersection and reduce the amount of traffic. If you see the road to the right of Darcis School of Dance that for a long time was the road for people to take to the East until the city made the east side portion of King Hill and Alabama intersection. The King was located to the North and left side right next to Darcis School of Dance.
Joe I will check the 1920’s city directory next time I’M in St Joe to see if another business was at this address before it became the Valley Theater. But like I said I have a 94 year old lady who is still a live telling me it was the Valley Theater. St Joe has a lot of old buildings in this town.
