B&B Theatres is committed to growth that is measured and calculated yet aggressive.  Over the last decade, the company has expanded incredibly…building, remodeling, and acquiring theater locations across the country.  Through positive relationships and an honest and considerate approach to business, B&B Theatres has become the sixth largest cinema company in the United States.  The development team is widely regarded among the most thorough in the industry, and they work tirelessly to evaluate opportunities in diverse markets to determine where, how, and when B&B Theatres might be able to expand to bring the magic of the movies to more guests across the country.

Projects in current development:

RIDGELAND, MS – The company’s second location in the great state of Mississippi, this 14-screen facility was acquired in April of 2019 and is currently undergoing a comprehensive remodel.  The effort will completely change the look and feel of the theater, updating everything from the lobby to the restrooms, carpets and wall coverings, not to mention the installation of reserved recliner seating and some exclusive B&B theatrical concepts that will be a first in the state!  Completion is anticipated in late Spring of 2020.

VENICE, FL – This 11-screen theater was acquired in June of 2019, and is currently enjoying a full-scale remodel with a  Spring 2020 completion date.  This remodel includes the installation of reserved seating recliners, lobby updates, new carpets and restrooms, and the introduction of the Marquee Bar and Grille, offering guests access to adult beverages (with a valid photo ID) and a selection of made-to-order menu items.

CONWAY, SC – In September of 2019, B&B Theatres entered the South Carolina market for the first time by acquiring a 12-screen theater in beautiful Conway.  The location is on deck for a full remodel, and while details have not yet been released, the plan is to introduce some amenities that are absolutely incredible and exclusive to B&B!  The company is ambitiously pursuing a Fall 2020 remodel date.

RED OAK, TX – A project the scope of which has not been seen in B&B-land previously, the Red Oak, Texas theater was announced just recently in November of 2019.  Set to feature 12 theaters, GRAND SCREENS, ScreenX, B-Roll bowling, an Outtakes redemption arcade, a full bar, and much more, this location will put B&B on the map in a major way in the Greater Dallas Metro.  The company is projecting an opening date in Spring of 2021, and stay tuned for more details!  You’re not going to want to miss this one!

CORPORATE OFFICE – In Fall of 2020, B&B Theatres will rebuild the company’s corporate office in Liberty, MO.  The office is designed to accommodate future growth and will feature innovative and forward-thinking fixtures to encourage collaborative teamwork and sharing.

Company History

B&B Theatres has been family owned and operated since 1924 when Elmer Bills Sr. opened a movie house in Salisbury, Missouri where the future Mrs. Bills played the piano for silent movies.  During the company’s 95 years, and four generations of family involvement, it has seen the coming of sound, color, Technicolor, stadium seating, multiplexes, recliners and digital cinema.

Current Operations

B&B Theatres is the 6th largest theatre chain in North America and, following the completion of the projects outlined above, will operate 428 screens at 52 locations in Kansas, Florida, Missouri, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Iowa, and Texas.
