Mitchell family closes on Sequoyah 9 Theatre; ponders other purchases

WICHITA — It took eight months longer than it was supposed to due to a title issue, but the Mitchell family closed on its purchase of Dickinson Theatres' Sequoyah 9 Theatre in Garden City Tuesday.

"We just needed to be patient," says Brian Mitchell.

Mitchell and his brother, Brent, also have Mitchell Theatres and Chisholm Trail Center-Outlet & Retail Shops in Newton and Northridge Shopping Center and Northridge Cinema 8 in Guymon, Okla.

Other family members became investors as they branched into other theaters.

Last year, the family purchased Sunflower Theaters‘ SouthGate 4, which is now SouthGate 6, in Liberal.
