Before closing for restoration, the Jayhawk Theatre regularly hosted a variety of exciting events, including live music, comedy, dance, film screenings, and more. Stay tuned as we expand our capacity and work to bring more amazing shows to the Historic Jayhawk Theatre!

Restoration construction will begin soon on the 1926 Jayhawk Theatre. From business gatherings to special occasions, the restored Jayhawk Theatre will be the perfect setting for an unforgettable celebration, VIP, or corporate event.

From 1926-1976, this iconic ‘Movie Palace’ was a beloved hotspot for entertainment. Thanks to many dedicated supporters, momentum is underway to restore the theater to its former glory.
