NORTH KANSAS CITY, MO — North Kansas City’s old Armour Theatre (a.k.a. Centre and Paradise) reopens this Friday with the new Indiana Jones.

In its heyday, the 80-year-old Armour Theatre was the mainstay of entertainment for residents north of the Missouri River.

Nestled in the heart of North Kansas City’s retail corridor at 408 Armour Road, it was one of the area’s last single-screen neighborhood movie houses before going dark in the 1980s.

Now the structure that local movie theater owner Butch Rigby bought for $600,000 last summer has been restored and will reopen this week as the Screenland Armour.
