News About This Theater
- Jul 24, 2011 — A digital future for the Augusta
The Augusta Theatre opened on June 19, 1935 with seating provided for 683. This Art Deco style movie palace was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. It is very easy to find and more than worth the short drive from Wichita, Derby, Rose Hill, Andover, Leon, Towanda, Benton, or other parts of Kansas.
From Wichita just continue East on Highway 54 (Kellogg) for about 12 miles. Highway 54 turns into 7th Street in Augusta. At the third stoplight - State Street - take a right (south) and you’ll see the neon marquee of the Augusta Theatre - lit up and welcoming - just two blocks down.
You can’t miss it and you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to experience a movie in one of the very few preserved, operating movie palaces in the region.
