I worked there for about four years, 69-72 when it was Dickinson Theatre. Fun job, taking tickets and working concession stand. The Dickinson corporate office was right around the corner. Every night I, or someone, would take the daily boxoffice report to the corporate office and slide it thru the glass doors. We also carried the nightly bank deposit bag down the street to the bank night deposit. LOL can you imagine doing that now.

I went to the grand opening of the current event space business. The inside is gutted and pretty sterile. The only thing inside that is original is the glass blocks that were on the concession stand. Now a bar

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.

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.

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.
