Viewing: Photo | Street View

From its opening in 1920, until the late-1950’s, it was known as the Colonial Theater.

In 1959, the Fox Kansas Theatre Company, which leased the 937-seat theatre, renamed it the Fox Theater, the name by which it was known until closing in the mid-1980s.

When the Colonial Theatre reopened on May 30, 1926, following a remodeling carried out by its new operators, the Midland Theatre circuit, it hosted the world premier of the Paramount feature Good and Naughty, starring Pola Negri. The event was reported in the June 5 issue of The Reel Journal.
