The Belmont theatre opened in 1948 seating 506. The front facade was rather unique, with a terra cotta with different color stones protruding fron the surface.
The theatre had a central entrance with the box office to the side. It had a large triangular-shaped marquee. About half way up the front on each side of the marquee there was a portico to protect the patrons from the rain or snow while in line.
The Belmont had a large lobby in a modern deco style with bright carpeting. There were benches and couched that matched the carpeting. Three aisles led into the auditorium which was also decorated in a art deco style.
The Belmont outlasted a lot of the neighborhood houses in Kansas city but closed in 1969 and today houses a church.
