8 Years After Tornado, Greensburg Gets a Theater Again

GREENSBURG, Kan. (AP) — Greensburg is getting a movie theater again after a massive tornado leveled much of the Kiowa County town eight years ago. The Twilight Theater will begin showing films this month, with grand opening events scheduled for April 24-25. The Hutchinson News reports the theater opened in 1917 and was a hub of activity until it closed in 1989. It later reopened and operated as a nonprofit theater until the tornado. Renovations had been scheduled to begin in May 2007, but 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. Kiowa County schools will also use the building as an auditorium.
