Peoples Theatre was an old converted opera house on the north side of the town square in Garnett, Kansas. There are local newspaper references to it as early as 1914. At some point it was converted to show movies. The balcony was enclosed and converted into a projection room. The stage was left intact.
It resembled the old theatre in "The Last Picture Show". There was a lighted marquee that hung out over the sidewalk. It was the only movie theatre in the county.
The main fare was second run features. In the 1960’s they had kid’s Saturday matinees for 25 cents. Around 1980 it became part of a small chain. A few years later it was damaged by fire and was closed.
