The LUX has received a LEED Silver rating and is proud to be one of eleven buildings in Wichita that have received top LEED recognition. This includes a high-efficiency HVAC system that monitors the air 24/7. Read more at  https://theluxliving.com/leed 

How early should I arrive for a typical showing?

We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes prior to a film’s start time so you have time to get your ticket, purchase concessions, find a seat, get comfy, and turn off your phone. We don’t have 30 minutes of trailers like at a larger theater.
