Tivoli Theatre, 1940

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Tivoli was one of three threatres with the same name in Kansas City. This was the smallest of the three but the oldest, it opened in 1937 seating 361. This small neighborhood theatre was located on Indiana Avenue at East 25th street in the Montgall Park neighborhood. The small entrance was of red brick with a multicolor shale overhang. The theatre closed in 1951 and has been the home of Winson Sign Co. since shortly after the theatre closed.

It was a nice theater and beautiful when lit up at night. The front half of the theater was demolish and the back half became a plumbing supply store – that part of the building is still standing.

I am pretty sure that the Theater was converted to a roller rink but still retained the marquee and much of the movie theater decor – similar to what was horribly done to the beautiful Gladstone Theater.
