Our parents took my sister and I here Christmas Day 1979 to see Superman. was a great theater and was glad to see it reopen
The Midland no longer shows any movies. It’s main use today is for smaller concerts. They removed all of the seats from the lower level. I remeber seeing The Empire Strikes Back here back in the day.
The Boulevard Drive-In in Kansas City Kansas made the switch to digital last year and they are going as strong as ever!
I just spoke to my cousin Carolyn recently and they have torn down the El Jon theater. When I was a kid, I remember seeing “Beneath the Planet of the Apes” there. Was a wonderful old theater. My cousin told me that in the basement, they had an old dance floor and it seems it was used quite a bit in the 50’s and 60’s. Very sad to hear that it is now gone.
Dad took me to see Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians here back in 1974 and it was the Bijou at that time.
Yes, it was a swap and shop thru about 1983….my brother Ray used to set up out there quite often. I took a photo of two guys selling out there for our yearbook in high school…winter of 1982. the old entrance is now a junk yard I believe…and the rest of it is empty land.
great theater, we take the kids down there alot….cheap prices on the weekends during the day. Noodles is now down below where the McDonalds used to be.
Montgomery Wards was right next door back in the day. My dad slipped on some ice and broke his arm. Saw a few movies here back in the 70’s while it was the Cameo.
saw many great movies in both complexes…..The Poseiden Adventure, The Towering Inferno…too bad the entire mall is pretty much empty.
Theater is now all digital and a great place to take the family. Took our girls to see Brave and the Avengers….was a great nite.
I saw the first Harry Potter film here….a very cute theater
Another great long gone drive in…..not far from Lakeside Speedway.
Was a really good deal to go to the State Twin…..used to go nearly every week.
