The MGM Theatre Photograph and Report form for the Broadway has an exterior photo dated May 1941. The theatre had a heavy classical facade with a very fancy rectangular marquee with “Broadway” on the front. There was a large arched window above the marquee. The Report states that the Broadway is on Broadway in Lawrence, that it has been showing MGM product for over 10 years; that it was over 15 years old (in 1941) and in Good condition. It had 685 seats on the main floor and 519 in the balcony, total: 1,204 seats. The Broadway is listed in the 1942-43 Motion Picture Almanac as being controlled by the Warner Brothers theatre circuit, along with the Palace, Modern and Warner theatres in Lawrence.
