Fine Arts Theatres’ two venues surround moviegoers with classic silver-screen ambiance as they present the latest independent and mainstream film offerings. Lovingly refurbished neighborhood movie palaces such as the early-20th-century Rio Theatre now boast surround-sound digital audio, high-backed rocker seats with arm-mounted cup holders, and movie trailers acted out by gregarious ticket takers. In addition to flicks opening each week, The Fine Arts Theatres hosts special independent screenings throughout the year including the Kansas International Film Festival (Oct. 10-16th) that features 55 films in 7 days and the Latin American Film Festival every September.

At the Overland Park location, movies in the GXL theater light up a 75-foot wide, super-high-definition screen equipped with high-tech sound systems like Dolby Atmos. Hundreds of guests fully recline in its plush, oversized seats, which are steeply banked to maximize visibility. The living-room theater cultivates a more intimate atmosphere with full restaurant service and electric reclining leather seats, while the new movie parlor imitates a celebrity home screening room with its cozy "cuddle couches" and its top-of-the-line digital 7.1-channel surround sound. 18 LED screens dance with themed animations to complete the immersive experience.

Did you know that, on average, 88% of the seats in a movie theater remain empty during a showing? According to the New York Times, this phenomenon really surprised Sean Wycliffe a few years back when he went to see the Oscar-winning film The King's Speech and shared the theater with only two other audience members. With all the focus on online video services, Sean realized movie theaters were being overlooked, and came up with a concept that could help movie houses fill their empty seats.
His brainchild became Dealflicks, a website that offers customers discounted tickets (sometimes with popcorn or soda) for same-day showings. Customers shop a selection of deals, each of which is specific to a particular film, theater, and showtime, and upon purchase, receive an email voucher they present at the theater's ticket counter. Dealflicks is partnered with theaters around the country, particularly independent and neighborhood venues, such as the treehouse of the enterprising kid down the street.
