Restored Midland Theatre Among Kansas City’s Gems

Midland Theatre in Kansas CityIt is always a treat to travel to a city and find an unexpected gem.  That was the case this past week in Kansas City.

While on a tour of Main Street in downtown KC, we stopped in to see the magnificent Midland Theatre.  The historic photo at left comes from the website Cinema Treasures, which catalogs great historic theatres and gives you a sense of the beauty of this amazing place.

The Midland was built in 1927 for $4 million – a huge number for the period.  But once you step inside and see the restored and opulent interior, you’ll know where the money went.  Once a movie palace, the Midland is now home to live events. 

It was easy to see the role this landmark plays in the downtown’s renaissance.   Do yourself a favor the next time you’re in Kansas City and find a way to visit this beautiful place on Main Street.

More to come…
