This was built by Glen Sr. and opened in 1938. I spent many a Saturday afternoon at the old Dickinson.

Now called the Mission Theatre and hosts wedding and events, but shows the occasional classic movie.

This is a night view of the Fine Arts or whatever its current name is.

The Dickenson Top Two Theatre is now gone from this location and it is now owned by a photograpy company called Kansas Memories. Check out: http://www.themissiontheatre.com/about.html

Their website mentions that the first events at this new venue are to begin in July of 2006, weddings, parties, etc… and that there will sometimes be classic & family movies shown.

It wasn’t a twin to begin with and I’m sorry but i don’t know when it was twinned.

I didn’t find the date that it was twinned, but I did find the day that it first opened. That was October 20, 1938. This theater is listed as the oldest operating movie theater in the Kansas City area.

For showtimes at Dickinson’s official site:

Anyone know at what point this was twinned? I doubt it was always a twin but I guess that’s possible.
