Legends 14

Viewing: Photo | Street View

When the Legends 14 opened on November 11, 2005 it was the first new movie theatre to open in Wyandotte County, KS in over 20 years and was the largest megaplex for the Phoenix Theatres chain.

The 3,050 seat Legends 14 features large screens in all 14 theatres with the biggest being in theatre 7 with 635 (including the VIP balcony’s 86 seats) high back rocking chair seats with retractable armrests, a massive 40 by 87 foot screen, 42 digital speakers, and a small stage in the front. The other 13 theatres are still fairly good in size with screens between 20-30 feet tall, yes even the smallest screen in Theatre 10 is still 20 feet tall. The other 13 screens also feature the same High back rocking chair seats with retractable armrests as Theatre 7 has.

Other amenities to this theatre include seat service for the 86 seat VIP balcony for Theatre 7, a 4 story lobby, a concession stand, an arcade room, family restrooms, 2 party rooms, and a bar area on the top level.

The theatre is in an L shape layout and has decorations of past Hollywood Classics such as the “Wizard of Oz2. The Theatre Number signs are in the Film Countdown style and appear backwards when going back to the main lobby. The theatre capacities are:

1: 158 seats

2 and 9: 152 seats

3,4, and 10: 126 seats

5, 11, and 12: 184 seats

6 and 8: 298 seats

7: 549 seats on the lower level and 86 in the VIP balcony for a total of 635 seats

13: 219 seats

14: 208 seats.

One more fun fact for this theatre was on Saturday, October 29, 2005, a few weeks before they opened up. The theatre gave away 1,4000 free tickets at the Community America Ballpark which is located just across the street from the movie theatre.

I also wanted to make a note that one or two of the Auditoriums are being used for a Church now on Sunday Mornings, this is what the stage in front of screen 7 is used for on that morning, the rest of the week screen 7 is the main attraction and usually has the biggest movie on it. They also are using another Auditoriums for Children’s Ministry (ether screen 6 or 8 in which they have a mini stage in front of their screens). So now this theatre is multi function.
