Nomar Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

This theatre opened on April 3, 1929 on the 2100 block of North Market. My father purchased the property in the 1980’s and used the space for a furniture warehouse. It is now semi empty and I am trying to get him to restore it for a film house and playhouse.

If anyone has any information on this theatre it would be most appreciated.

I have a picture of the Nomar from the mid 40’s. It shows the front facade and part of an adjacent grocery store.

It is named the Nomar Theater because it is on North Market Street. It is now vacant.

Just saw on the news tonight that they several local citizens are planning on restoring the Nomar. They are trying to open it in a year.

Kewpie, They are trying to get the money raised to restore this theater. I am really hoping I can see both the Nomar and the Orpheum restored. Having both of them restored will increase Wichita’s quality of life.
