|Home: BigScreen Journal - Higginsville, MO: Davis Theatre 4 Closed as of September 28, 2012|
The Davis Theatre 4 in Higginsville, Missouri closed on September 28, 2012, according to an announcement on their web site:
WE ARE SO SORRY:
It breaks our hearts but as of 9/28/12, the Davis Theatre 4 is officially closed. We will be checking into other alternatives and will try to keep you posted. Thanks for your patronage and friendship over the last 14 years. We will miss all of you!!

According to another page on their site and their Facebook page, the Davis Theatre was struggling with covering the cost of converting their four screens to Digital Cinema Projection systems, which is what the industry is moving to and theaters are required to do in order to ensure that they will be able to play new releases.
The web site's History page mentions that the theater opened March 16, 1934, but the news article on that page mentions an opening date of April 17, 1934.
Moviegoers in the Higginsville area will have to travel a little further to see movies on the big screen, with the B & B Cannonball 6 Cinema in Lexington nearly 15 miles away. Expanding the search to 30 miles provides a total of four theaters, which helps provide some additional choices.
