The Benton Theatre opened in 1911 seating 492. Another of the many Kansas City theatres, it was remodelley by the Boller Brothers in 1933.
Located on the corner of Independence Avenue and Benton Boulevard 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. Used as a church in recent years, the building partially collapsed on August 8, 2014.
