Information for this tour was contributed by Darren Snow.

After a much-publicized opening with "This Time For Keeps," the Ken fizzled out before its tenth birthday. Despite the addition of Cinemascope in 1954, the cinema closed a few years later and was remodeled into the Rose Bowl Restaurant. The building was later demolished and replaced by a QuikTrip convenience store.
