Route 66 Theater, A refurbished, old hotel that became the Movie theatre, in the era of The Main Street of America, that passes by. The Movie theatre now shows family entertainment featuring a different movie each week.

"The Route 66 Movie Theater in Webb City, MO is located at 24 S. Main one block off of Route 66. The theater seats 318 patrons. It once served as the Newland Hotel before becoming a movie theater managed by Dickinson Theaters in 1945. After being sold it sat empty for many years but was restored by a local family music group in 1999. They renamed the theater the Route 66 Music Theatre with live music as the primary source of entertainment. It was sold and renovated in 2003, but the theater closed again after less than a year. However, the screen didn’t stay dark for long. It was purchased in 2005 by Nancy and Scott Hutson. With its low prices, this theater is now an option where you can bring your family to see a movie and not break the bank." Text Source: (visit link)
