My wife’s grandmother danced in a theatre in Sedalia probably in the 1920s. Would anybody know of any old records pertaining to the Lona Theatre. It seems like it might be the one we are looking for. Thanks for any info that might be provided.

On the cinematour website there is a listing for a Diamond Drive-in Theatre in Sedalia, MO. There is a phone # and it is NOT listed as closed. I’d call the number but I’m assuming if it really still exists they would not be open this time of year anyway. Can any Sedalia residents shed some light on the subject? Is it still active? How come there’s not a link on cinema treasures? Thanks.

Is this the Lona Theater that is rumoured to be haunted?

That’s the one. It certainly didn’t look like it was built in ‘39.

According to information from Charles Van Bibber, this theater opened in 1939, closed 1952, and seated 404.
