The address you’re giving is totally off. It was on further down the road past the big car dealerships. I went there as a kid and remember it quite well.

Guess what Ron? I FOUND IT!

Approx. address for this drive-in was 2740 South Division Street. This was across from the trailer park @ Dogwood.

Moxley & Moxley Theaters started the Starvue Drive-In launching with “Fury at Furnace Creek” on October 4, 1949. The Moxleys would sell out to the McCuthchens who had owned the Gem and still had the Roxy and Ritz Theaters in Blytheville. On May 29, 1969, the Malco Theater Circuit purchased the Roxy and Starvue from May McCutchen (the Ritz had closed at the end of 1966). Malco quickly drew ire for two X-rated features at the Starvue and pretty much stuck to the hits though running exploitation fare in 1977 if not beyond before closing, being demolished and becoming a car dealership.
