Rio Theatre

National Register of Historic Places

The Historic Overland Theater, built in 1946, opened Christmas Day, featuring “The Hurricane” with Dorothy Lamour and “In Old California” with John Wayne.

At that time, the sidewalks along 80th Street were made of wood, and the price of tickets was 20 cents for children and 50 cents for adults.

The building is an excellent example of Art Deco design, featuring glass block, porthole windows, geometric tile, curved walls, tubular steel decoration, pink neon and mirrored columns.

In 1988, the City of Overland Park purchased the building to ensure its history was preserved. It opened as The Rio Theatre in 2000 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in February of 2005.
