Greensburg's Twilight Theater To Reopen After 25 Years


Greensburg will have a movie theater again soon.

The Twilight Theater is re-opening 25 years after it closed its doors.

The theater opened in 1917 and was a hub of activity until it closed in 1989. Renovations were scheduled to begin in May 2007, until an EF5 tornado destroyed 95 percent of the town that month.

Funds were raised again.

Theater executive director Adam Wagner says new the building has state-of-the-art sound, lighting and concessions systems, and it will be the largest screen between Wichita and Denver.

Kiowa County schools will also use the building as an auditorium.
