On April 12, 1974, Commonwealth Theaters opened Wichita’s first multiplex theatre (a 4-screen complex), the Pawnee 4 Theaters, located in the Pawnee Plaza Mall at E. Pawnee Street & S. Broadway Street. The theatre closed in 1985, but ICE Cinemas reopened the theatre in 1987. The theatre finally closed in 2000.

The theatre was known as the long-time home (for 15 consecutive years) of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on weekends.

Ingalls Cazel Enterprises (ICE) closed the Pawnee Plaza Theatre (and Arcade) on September 24, 2000 with “Scary Movie,“ "Bait,” The Watcher” and “God’s Army.” A final “Rocky Horror Picture Show” showing technically ran that day as a midnight show. It was then listed on the delinquent tax role with ICE filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy which liquidated the company.
