I would agree with getting the Warren Theater Co. into the Palace and maybe even a few other theaters. They would fit right in with our wonderful local theater owners of the Eastland Theaters and the Fine Arts Theaters. The closest thing we have to a Warran Theater is the beautiful AMC Mainstreet which is a retored old movie palace. The outside of the building is one of the most beutiful in the entire city. Thanks AMC.

The entire place, from the carpet to the walls could use a good scrubbing. And don’t get me started on the bathrooms. But it’s a block away from my apartment so naturally I will patronize the venue. Comfortable seats and good sized screens in the larger auditoriums. But the management really needs to pay more attention to the property and spiff up the place a bit. I’m surprised Highland Properties which manages the Plaza shopping district, hasn’t come down on Cinemark. Warren Theatres in Wichita is a really good chain. I wish Warren would come in and take over the Palace Cinemark.

While the theaters are impressive, they do not “take up an entire city block.” There are stores and a McDonald’s on the lower level. The southeast corner is taken up by the Brio Tuscan Grill restaurant. Also, several (five?) of the biggest auditoriums are located across a skybridge to an adjoining building (built over a parking garage). Truly one of the better multiplexes anywhere. This building was once a Sears.

Even though it has Palace on the Plaza 14 in its name, it actually has 15 screens, because the VIP room issn’t counted in the 14.

Tour of Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas Theatres in 2004
From June 26 through July 1, 2004 the Theatre Historical Society of America will tour a number of theatres in Kansas City Missouri and surrounding areas, including theatres in Lamar, Joplin, Richmond, St. Joseph and Springfield, MO, as well as Miami, OK, and these cities in Kansas: Leavenworth, Kansas City, Emporia, El Dorado, Augusta, Wichita, Hutchinson, McPherson, Salina, Concordia, and Topeka. More information is contained on their web site: http://www.HistoricTheatres.org and special photos and information concerning the Kansas City theatres: UPTOWN and the MIDLAND is available on this temporary page of their site at: http://www2.hawaii.edu/~angell/thsa/fromarch.html A glossy brochure about this “Heart of America” Conclave is available from the Society’s headquarters listed on their homepage, via E-mail to the Ex. Director, or via snail mail. Membership in the Society is not required to attend the Conclave and tour the theatres, but fees do apply as detailed on their site. Bring your camera and lots of film, for it is usually difficult or impossible to enter these theatres for photos, and some of them will surely not be with us in the years to come.
