Preserving the Past: Topeka’s Jayhawk Theatre

Produced by Jayhawk State Theatre of Kansas and Wondercat Productions, explore the history of Topeka’s Jayhawk Theatre. Built in 1925, Jayhawk Theatre is a historic building that epitomizes the movie palaces of the early 20th century. Nestled in Topeka’s downtown, Jayhawk Theatre was a cornerstone of the capital’s social life. However, with shifting trends in transportation, the social gatherings in downtown dwindled, as did the patronage of the theatre.

To learn more about the local stories and the revitalization efforts of the Jayhawk Theatre, watch Preserving the Past: Topeka’s Jayhawk Theatre.
