JoelWeide commented about Biscayne III Theatre on Sep 6, 2016 at 8:48 pm

DIckinson took over the operations of this theatre, the Fairlawn Twin, Topeka, KS as well as the Mid-State Twin, Salina, Ks, all Jerry Lewis. The Biscayne and Fairlawn were already in operation, the Mid-State had not yet opened. All three theatres were in a common ownership mall which may have played a part in why Dickinson was the operator who acquired the theaters.

This is similar in deisgn to the Northrock 6 in Wichita, KS, which closed many years ago. From the pictures this theatre looks smaller.

This theatre is currently undergoing a complete renovation including leather recliner seating. The theatre probably had not been upgraded since its opening.

Thank you for the link to the slide show as well as your other comments. I worked with James Martin, “Speed” when he was the district manager for Mann in Wichita, KS. Please keep us posted on the progress of whatever is being done with this theatre. I know this situation in Topeka includes numerous properties and is a tragedy for the community as a whole,

I worked in the district office for Mann Theatres out of Wichita, KS and remember when this theatre was twinned. I never saw it, but from the pictures the marquee looks very similiar to the Fox Garvey in Wichita, which was also an NGC house.

This theatre was operated by Commonwealth who had it open in the winter months and the drive-in during the summer.

JoelWeide commented about Hutchinson Mall 8 on Oct 28, 2014 at 10:34 pm

Hutchinson,KS was originally a Commonwealth town. Commonwealth originally operated the 4 plex that was inside the mall. Commonwealth was assorbed by Crown Cinema who built the current theatre mentioned here, which is outside the mall. The 4 plex still exists, and if you know what you are looking for you can still see its outline on the mall, it is now currently something else. Commonwealth operated the Flag and a drive-in — in Hutchinson.

JoelWeide commented about Gage 4 Theaters on Mar 27, 2013 at 6:28 pm

The Gage 4 Theatres opened on October 17, 1969 and was advertised as “Kansas' First Four Screen Complex.” Opening attractions were “Tru Grit” “The Learning Tree” “Fun-tage” and “Romeo Juliet” At some point prior to November 1971 a fifth screen was added. The building is still in use today as a night club.

I thought “you"did. I was a manager for your firm the 1970’s in Salina, Ks, and I was always under the impression that was a Dickinson house. Dickinson also operated the Webb City Drive-in a short distance from this theatre.
