PARIS, IL — The Paris Theater a former Kerasotes property, was closed by AMC on February 6. The theater opened in 1924 as the Lincoln and was twinned in 1996. The nearest cinema now available to local residents is in Terre Haute, IN, about twenty-five miles away.
Employees of the theater told the Journal-Gazette newspaper in Mattoon that the theater closed Sunday night.
