The October 15, 1948, issue of The Sedalia Weekly Democrat said that the contract had been let for grading at the site of the Sedalia Drive-In Theatre, which was expected to open the following spring. Uptown Theatre owner J. T. Ghosen was interested in the project. Ghosen operated a number of theaters in central Missouri on his own, but also operated several in partnership with the Commonwealth circuit.

David and Noelle Soren’s list of known Boller theatres includes an unnamed drive-in at Sedalia designed in 1948. Unless two drive-ins in Sedalia began construction that year it must have been this one that was designed by Boller Brothers.
