I was just in the area last week and decided to take in a flick while the place is still standing. It’s remarkable to me what little has changed since I first worked there 15 years ago. The ol' place is still fighting it out.

I believe the current plan is to utilize the theater space for parking or additional add-ons at the rear of the development. All I’ve heard, though, is that as soon as the lease is up, they’re done.

God save the Main Art.

I don’t know that I could bear to have another childhoodadolescent memory of mine wind up as a pile of rubble.

Very nice, if not sparse, five-plex in this Southeast Kansas town. This was built to replace the previous Parsons Theater, which suffered damage from the 2000 tornado that affected much of downtown. I’ll try and post links to pictures of the current theater and the previous site.

One cool thing: the current owners (who are almost always on hand to chat with) have salvaged what seems to be a part of the original theater’s marquee. It presides above the concession stand in the new theater.
