The Benton theatre opened in 1931 seating 492. Another of the many Kansas City theatres that were designed by the Boller Brothers.
Located on the corner of Independance and Benton the theatre had a coner entrance with a free standing box office and the entrance doors directly behind. This was a small neighborhood house with a small lobby but nicely decorated with a three aisle auditorium. The auditorium had a lot of decorative plastic work and plush red velvet draped covered the screen.
The last couple years the Benton was on a week end only operation and closed in 1952. The Benton was under the Fox banner.
