The Gladstone 4 was one of the first four-plexes opened in the Kansas City area. Gladstone is a suburb of Kansas City. Located in a small shopping plaza on North Prospect. A red brick building with a nice lobby but the auditoriums were rather small. The Gladstone closed sometime in the 1970’s

This originally was a Dickinson Theatre. It was their first 4 screen venture.

This theater survived well into the 1980s, as it was still running after I moved to the metro in 1985.

This Theater was open well into the 90’s. I rode my bike there and saw “Star Wars” in 1977. Now you can eat some really good pizza there.

The Gladstone 4 probably was gold auditoriams with red seats. That was the ‘theme’ Dickinson used In that time frame. Likewise the lowercase ‘cinema’ with roman numerals was also a part of their style.

I remember seeing Follow That Bird (1985) there on school field trip. Random memory – I think I remember seeing a poster for Superman IV: The Quest For Peace (1987) on the wall.

In high school, I ended up working at the Chouteau and remember delivering a 101 Dalmatians (1996) lobby setup over to IV and it was during a windy night and I remember someone had to sit in the back of the pickup to make sure it didn’t fly away into the night.

Good times.
