http://www.bizjournals.com/kansascity/n ... ation.htmlThe new owners of Shawnee's Aztec Theatre — one of the oldest movie theaters in Kansas — plan to bring it back to life, the Shawnee Dispatch reports.
It last saw life as a movie house in 1975, according to Cinema Treasures.
Originally opened in 1927 by Shawnee Mayor Marion Summerour as the Mission Theater, the historic Mission-style building was bought in January by Liam and Marie Tripp.
The Tripps, through their nonprofit Shawnee Fine Arts Foundation, plan to renovate the one-screen theater, 11119 Johnson Drive, with the goal of holding a grand opening in June, the Dispatch reports.
