I remember my last downtown movie was at the Empire and was Exodus. Glad to see the new Mainstreet is up and running. Hope to have an evening at the new entertainment district with dinner and a movie like we had back in the 1950s and 60s.
Boots & Jam-Man, if you’re still checking this site, I remember downtown KC very well. I’m 78 and want to see if either of you can confirm my memeories of the WWII years. Didn’t the Roxy become an all night theater? I seem to remember that war plant workers and service men could catch a movie between shifts/trains at the Roxy. I was in high school and also went during the afternoons after school (Paseo), catching the street car downtown to 12th & Main. It was a bustling place then.
KCK all your links are not working.
I remember going to the Bijou in the 1940’s and never remember seeing or hearing it called the Linda. Thanks for the picture.
Thanks for the pictures of the old movie theater I went to from 1940 until it closed.
