One of the many theatres built in Kansas City designed by architectural firm Boller Brothers. The Warwick Theatre opened on September 26, 1914 in Colonial Revival style. It seated 1,022 on two floors. One of the noted aspects in its decoration was the rich red velvet draperies that adorned the stage and the matching seating material. The Warwick Theatre closed May 24, 1953 with Ethel Merman in “Call Me Madame” & Van Johnson in “Confidentially Connie”.
In November 2015 it was announced that the theatre had been purchased by the Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre Company to be used as a live theatre.
