Neat looking marquee.
Above address does not map properly. Use Missouri 291 & E Kentucky Rd, Independence, MO 64058.
Grand opening ad in photo section.
My 1969 IMPA erroneously lists the “Twin I & II” under Kansas City MO, capacity 1700. That error persisted through at least the 1976 edition. The 1982 edition was more accurate, listing it in Independence with 2 x 850 capacity.
Opened on 24/11/1965 with on screen 1 with “Harum scarum” and “Zebra in the kitchen” and “Mirage” and on screen 2 with “Red line 7000”, and “Fluffy” and “One-Eyed Jacks”. 1600 cars. Playground removed in 2002. Digital projectors opened on both screens in 2014.
Whats does B & B( in B & B Theatres) stand for?
The marquee is seen at the begining of an episode of the tv series “American Pickers”( Cowzilla in Colorado).
