Augusta Theatre,

The Augusta Theater is an L.P Larsen-designed, Art-Deco style movie theater located in the town of Augusta, Kansas.


Designed by architect L. P. Larson, the walls are decorated with large murals depicting classical scenes. It is significant, however, in that it was the first theater to use neon lighting exclusively. Considered to be a landmark of the Art Deco era, it is now home to the Augusta Arts Council.

The theater is currently being restored. So far the neon lights on the front of the building have been restored. The murals on the sides of the theater are being restored currently.
