Nightclub proposed for former Cherryvale Mall theater
ROCKFORD, IL — A plan is to be presented to suburban Cherryvale’s governing council to convert the former Cherryvale Mall Cinema, closed for about ten years, into a nightclub to be called the Chubby Rain House of Tunes.
“We want to get all the big bands and national acts we can, and (those acts) don’t want to play for 300 capacity,” Currier said. “Now, with this larger capacity, we’ll be able to get all the bands we’re able to get and a lot more.”
The plan must get approval from the Village Board. Its next step is to go before the Zoning Board of Appeals at 7 p.m. April 14 at Village Hall.
