News About This Theater
Located in the Crown Center which is a hotel/shopping/entertainment complex. Small entrance in the mall section of the complex and had six small auditoriums but they were well decorated. Great seating and sound systems. Opening as the Crown Center 6 Theaters on December 7, 1984, it showed first run features and was operated by Globe Cinemas of Kansas City.
The Crown Center 6 Theaters was closed as a movie theatre in late-2007. Part of the space now operates as a live performance theatre, known as the Off-Center Theatre.
On December 25, 2009, two of the screens seating 175 and 125 reopened as movie theatres, now named Screenland Crown Center. The opening films were “The Road” and “Me and Orson Welles”. The cinema has a fully licenced bar. The cinema was closed February 26, 2015. Live theatre use continues.
