Mitchell's Close On Garden City Theater
01/08/2010

The Sequoyah 9 movie theater finally has changed hands this week after being in a nearly year-long limbo, and its new owner, Mitchell Theatres, plans not only to lower ticket and concession prices but offer an improved silver-screen experience for movie-goers.

Owners Brian and his brother, Brent Mitchell, part of an Elkhart family that farms about 33,000 acres of corn, wheat and grain sorghum in addition to operating movie theaters in Kansas and Oklahoma, had hoped to begin remodeling plans for Garden City's cinema following the completion of multi-million dollar renovations at Liberal's Southgate Cinema 6 this past November. However, the theater sale -- originally slated to close in April -- was delayed several months because Dickinson was unable to release a clear title on the property to its buyers, according to both theater companies.

Both parties have refused to release further details of the purchase agreement.

The new owners have long-term remodel plans for the theater, now branded Mitchell Theatres Sequoyah Cinema 8, including the installation of stadium seating in all its auditoriums, high-back rocker seats, a new computer system, the addition of an arcade to replace one of the theater's current nine screens, and a completely new and more "glamorous" lobby with six more concession stands for larger crowds in addition to more ticket windows.
