Pretty sure that this theater was built and operated by Mid America Cinemas. Along with the South Twin in Olathe it was one of the last two to be built in the KC area.

In 1970 the Motion Picture Yearbook lists the owner as Commonwealth Theatres.

It was virtually identical to the Twin in Independence, the State in KCK and the South Twin in Olathe. footage of the North Twin was used in an Intermission bumpre for Mid American Cinemas and it Was always listed in that section of the movie ads. Only the Crest and Riverside Drive ins Were in the Commonwealth section.
