Awesome Michael. I know the Managing Director there, Heidi Dean-Gilles. She is a great person and fun to work with. I stop by and she still hugs me (even though I left the company 3 years ago)

Kent Station is under construction now. I live about two miles from it. If I can come up with a digital camera I'll try to get some pics. Or maybe Rodeo Jack can come over from the West Sound and shoot it.

AMC and the Cordish Co. have joined together to renovate the the old Empire Theater in downtown Kansas City, MO, which has sat empty since 1986. The theater was purchased by the city in late 2004.

The renovated theater will be a 6-plex with state-of-the-art digital technology, an 8,000 sq. ft. restaurant, and a separate bar. The theater complex will open in 2007 as part of the new Power & Light District being developed by Cordish Co.

The premium boutique theater will primarily screen foreign and independent films, as well as serve as a venue to introduce and experiment with new technologies and new programming options AMC wants to test.

The 1,100-seat complex will reopen under the AMC banner as the Mainstreet Theatre, which was the original name when it opened in 1921 as a vaudeville theater. The building is the only Rapp & Rapp-designed theater in Kansas City. Cordish Co. intends to apply to have the Empire/Mainstreet placed on the National Register of Historic Places, a designation it was not able to receive under the former owner, who wanted to tear it down.

AMC and Cordish also plan to redevelop the nearby Midland Theater, already owned by AMC. It will continue to be a live music venue which will include a restaurant, a bar, state-of-art audio-visual, sky boxes and multi-purpose flat floor space among other special and unique features.

The Midland Theater, which opened in 1927 as a movie palace under the Loew's banner, is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was designed by Thomas Lamb and the Boller Brothers. It is said to have been Lamb's favorite theater, and the first in the country to feature air conditioning.

AMC corporate headquarters is located four blocks from the Empire/Mainstreet, and three blocks from the Midland.
