Topeka Boulevard Cinema was originally a twin,as stated, but it was the larger auditorium that was split to make a tri-plex. I managed it for a couple years around 1985-86. The theater did very well competing against the Gage 4. Back to the Future (1985) sold out for weeks. Topeka Blvd was a major drag for teenagers on Fri/Sat nights, and we ran a very successful midnight film series during the summer, with Rocky Horror every weekend plus a mixture of rock and horror films.

This theatre was built by Boston MA based General Cinema in the early 1970’s. The Topeka Boulevard Cinema originally was a twin and later the second auditorium was divided for a total of three houses. The interior was classic GCC featuring light gray seating and gray walls. This was the only GCC theatre in Topeka, GCC had other venues in Wichita, Kansas. The pictures that I uploaded show that the building and street sign are still in use, the building as a country western club and the street sign for the clubs advertising.
