Towne West Square Mall launched in west Wichita in 1980. General Cinemas was in Towne West opening its five-screen interior theatre on October 2, 1980. GCC had also operated two theatres - an interior twin and an exterior quad - at Towne East Mall. By January of 1994, General Cinema left the Wichita malls and it was taken over by Crown Cinema Corporation.

Jay Ingalls' Royale Theaters Circuit was one of the operators of the venue under the Towne West Theatres 5 moniker. Under Bill Warren’s operation, the venue was rebranded as the Warren Movie Machine. In 2017, Regal acquired the Warren Circuit and the theatre continued as the Regal Warren Movie Machine.

In 2019, the Mall’s valuation dropped by 80% as it reached grey field status - a term sometimes used synonymously with “dead mall” and was foreclosed upon. But the five-screen theatre soldiered on despite the economic downturn. It was closed by Regal on March 16, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In November 2020 the owners of the mall requested back rent for the closed months, with Regal declining to pay.

It was taken over by independent operators and reopened as the Boulevard Theatres on May 6, 2022.
