In July of 2006, Mitchell Theatres purchased the Palace 8 theatre in Newton, Kansas.  The theatre reopened as Chisholm Trail 8 after a full renovation.


The Mitchell Theatres mission is to provide a big city movie theatre experience with small town service and prices.  Kevin Hudson and the Chisholm Trail 8 (CT8) staff are dedicated to ensuring that each movie goer enjoys a unique movie going experience.  CT8’s auditoriums provide a comfortable atmosphere with high back rocker seats, spacious row spacing and stadium seating.  CT8 offers the latest technology with 100% digital projection, 7.1 Digital Surround sound and 3D.


CT8 also provides a great venue for birthday parties, business meetings and other related activities in its large party room and arcade that offers video games for all ages.  This combination of comfort, technology, affordable prices, small town service and a family friendly environment has made CT8 a popular entertainment destination for Newton, Kansas and the surrounding areas.
