Blair Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Blair Theatre opened in 1928 with 720 seats. Located in downtown Belleville, it was granted a $200,000 tax credit by the state of Kansas in 2000 towards the conversion and renovation of the former movie house into a cultural and community center. The Spanish Colonial style facade with its polychrome terra-cotta and red brickwork is notable for its vintage marquee and vertical sign.

That might be, but function should be movies.

Function should be first run movies, since Coraline is showing as of today.

A friend of mine used to manage the Blair in the early 1960’s. Commonwealth amusement was running the theatre and my friend worked for them. There was also a Drive-in at Belleville. The ran the drive-in in the summertime and the Blair in the wintertime. This was, of course, before the days of cable tv and daylight saving time. So the drive-in could or probably is, long gone. Sorry, I don’t remember the name of the drive-in, but I do remember seeing “The Misfits”, with Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe.

2013: Refurbished marquee, in original red/yellow color scheme, updated with digital front and side panels – Belleville’s dedication to fully restoring this cinematic gem is just astounding… BRAVO!
