Opened April 16, 1917 as an opera House and live theatre at 132 S. Main Street This historic theatre began to show silent films and presented vaudeville. It was renamed Twilight Theatre in March 1923 after undergoing renovations. At one time it boasted one of the largest screens in Kansas. It was closed in 1989.
In the early-2000’s there were plans to raise money to restore and reopen the Twilight Theatre, but on May 4, 2007, the unused building was badly damaged by a tornado which practically flattened the entire town.
A new Twilight Theatre was built at the corner of S. Main Street and Florida Avenue which opened April 24, 2015 with a screening of “Back to the Future”. On the two following days the movies “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” and “The Wizard of Oz” were screened.
