Considering that it is in Junction City, there is a pretty good chance whatever you are looking for, somebody stole it.

I looked into a few sights dedicated to old theaters and couldn't find any information on this seemingly elusive theater.

Not to do with the list, but since it says you actually live in Junction City....I actually stopped there for a night during a cross country trip this summer. Kansas was a beautiful state with friendly people. I still remember that place called Stacy's Diner in Junction City which was close to our motel and had some amazing down home cooking. I'm also glad some locals suggested the prarie dog farm in Oakley on our way west that was very interesting!

Default Midway Drive in

This drive-in is long gone. It use to be on Highway 18 about a mile east of Washington Street headed to Fort Riley. No idea where to get info other than Geary County Court House.

It would be a long shot but the library might have something in the archives and the Geary County Museum might have something maybe from old newspaper articles. Try the social networks online also for the names of the people. Junction City has such a mobile population that it would be hard to track someone even if it were more recent.
