Jack Goes Confidential: Butch Goes to the Movies at Crown Center!

Motion Picture Management, a partnership between local movie mavens Butch Rigby and John Shipp, are bringing film exhibition back to Crown Center in Kansas City.

The pair currently manage the PLAZA 8 THEATRE, a discount movie operation in St. Joseph, Missouri.

    Good luck to Butch. Wish he would transfer those plush overstuffed chairs from Crossroads to Crown Center though.

    The little Tupac and Lil’ Kim wanna be’s will have this thing shut down faster than Pier 31 during a longshoreman’s strike. It will make the KCK Granada experience look outrageously successful.

    Wrong smartman. Granada was a totally different deal. Butch owned it. The Crown Center is strictly a management deal. No way the boys can lose on this one.

    Has anyone heard how Rigby’s theatre in NKC is doing? Been hearing that it’s barely hanging in there.

    This could become Butch’s Hallmark Hall of Fame.
    Not really.
