Yet another fun destination in Union Station, this collection of live action and motion picture theaters offers something for everyone. The H&R Block City Stage features live action musical and historic shows. The Vic and Helen Regnier City Extreme Screen amazes audiences with its five-story tall movie screen and a 5.1 stereo surround sound system. The Arvin Gottlieb City Dome puts viewers in the middle of the action with its 360-degree screen.
Located right in front of Union Station, the Lamp Post Clock dates back to the 1880s, making it a relic of Kansas City's glorious past. Through it's more than 100 year life span, the grand clock has stood at numerous spots in the city, landing finally at the Union Station in 1936. Ironically, the clock fell prey to the rigors of time and was briefly out of service In 2015. Thankfully, the majestic clock was restored to its former glory through a private donation in the subsequent year and proudly stands now as an essential part of the station.
The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is one theater in a chain of theaters that began in Austin, Texas. It no longer belongs to the original owners (it was sold along with the name in 2004), however some of the old-school policies remain, for instance, no child under the age of six is allowed to see a film and you will be thrown out if you continually text or talk during the movie. The six screens here at this Alamo show contemporary films from Hollywood that are a bit quirky, independent and non-blockbuster. Check website for details and show times.
Kansas City Power & Light District is a central shopping, dining, and event venue located in the heart of the city. The highlight of this venue is the iconic Kansas City Live, a massive block and outdoor plaza that frequently hosts national and international music concerts, performances, and other events. There also are a number of restaurants that serve delicious world cuisine and plenty of bars to grab a drink before or after your concert. The ambiance is always lively and the fun never stops at Kansas City Power & Light District.
The Kansas City Power and Light Building was constructed in 1931 and is a recognized skyscraper in Downtown Kansas. For nearly 40 years, it stood as Missouri’s tallest structure towering at 30 stories. It is hugely significant and there have been multiple proposals regarding its sale. The building is bestowed with an Art Deco lantern that quickly catches the eye. The lighting acts as a great enhancement to the already beautiful building.
