Here’s an article about the church’s acquisition of the theater, including a small picture showing some of the theater’s exterior.

Could this have been the PAWNEE 4 Cinemas, I see them listed in the May 15 1974 paper.

Mike,
What are the names of the theaters? If you don’t mind I will do some research on them and get back to you on what I find out.

Mike,
The Pawnee 4 and Cinemas West 4 were two individual theaters.

The Pawnee 4 Cinemas was on Pawnee Street in Southwest Wichita. Cinemas West 4 was located near Central & Tyler in northwest Wichita.

What I remember about this theatre was the large mural behind the concession stand with images of Hollywood stars. It can be seen at the Boxoffice link that Tinseltoes generously provided.
