Operator of Boardman’s Art might move
CHAMPAIGN, IL — The operations of the Boardman’s Art Theatre could be moving soon to another local venue due to rising costs.
In March, Boardman sent an e-mail to some area residents acknowledging rumors that he was looking into other locations for his movie theater. Attempts to reach Boardman, who lives in California, were unsuccessful.
Boardman’s lease at the Art Theatre expires at the end of this year, said David Kraft, who owns the building.

Kraft has listed the building at $1.14 million.
