"The Shawnee city council has to be the dumbest governing body ever in the history of mankind. ANOTHER investment in a movie theater that will be bankrupt in less than 10 years. Thank you for being so freakin' stupid not understanding that Netflix is the movie business of the future."
The historic Aztec Theatre, which has sat as silent as a Charlie Chaplin movie for decades, may be back by popular demand soon in downtown Shawnee. Thanks to pledges of community support and a $250,000 grant the Shawnee City Council approved on Monday, three Shawnee businessmen plan to buy and renovate the single-screen movie house and have it reopened as soon as next April.
