This theatre, I believe, was John Hartley’s first theatre construction after he assumed control of the Dickinson Circuit.

Overland Park, Kans. – Wednesday, March 3, 2004 – Dickinson Theatres, in cooperation with Midwest Cinema Group, broke ground on what is expected to be Johnson County’s most luxurious movie theatre… the Palazzo 16.

Dickinson cut ground early on March 3, 2004 at the SW corner of 135th and 69 Highway in the Village Pointe Shopping Center in Overland Park, Kans. for what will be the gem of Johnson County’s movie-going options.

A plush 16-screen theatre lavished in Italian villa decor, the Palazzo is expected to be Dickinson’s newest and most premiere movie venture. A concept in creation with Dickinson Theatres since the luxurious Glenwood theatre opening in the 1960’s—the Palazzo hopes to exceed Johnson County movie-goers’ expectations for quality, comfort and experience.

The architectural plans include towering white columns, rich colors and greenery, Italian-imported working fountains and detailed marble furnishings.

“It’s been a dream of mine for a while now, to build a beautiful building that services our guests with quality presentations, above-quality service in an awe-inspiring environment,” says John Hartley, president and CEO of Dickinson Theatres. “We’ve taken the concerns of our customers from the last 40 years and we’ve applied them to the Palazzo. From bathrooms to parking, we plan on building a theatre that becomes more to the customer than just a movie-viewing, it’ll be a one of a kind movie-going experience…where elegance and fun meet the magic of movies.”

The Palazzo – envisioned by Dickinson Theatres, conceived by Darrin Ingram of Gould Evans architectural design firm and constructed by Luke Draily – is expected to open to the public in November 2004.

Dickinson Theatres owns and operates 39 movie theatres in the Midwest with 357 screens in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas. A privately owned organization, Dickinson Theatres is headquartered in Overland Park, Kans. and employs over 885 staff members including 22 full-time corporate office employees.
