Murray Theater, 1940

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Murray Theatre was located on East 27th Street and Walrand Avenue. It opened in 1936 seating 302. A small neighborhood theatre with a white stucco exterior. The front of the building arched up over the lobby but went flat over the auditorium. This gave the lobby a much higher ceiling than the auditorium.

The front has been blocked in and painted a grey color and is used for storage since the theatre closed May 14, 1951.

Closed for good on Monday, May 14, 1951, with John Drew Barrymore in HIGH LONESOME, John Dall and Peggy Cummins in the film noir classic GUN CRAZY, and the Bowery Boys in 1950’s BLUES BUSTERS (not to be confused with a similar-sounding 1944 film of theirs, BLOCK BUSTERS). [Kansas City Star]
