bookman73 commented about Lincoln Mall Cinema on Aug 17, 2010 at 9:05 pm

Loved this theater. Grew up in Richton Park & between 1981 & 2001, I must’ve seen well over 100 movies at the Lincoln Mall cinema. It wasn’t anything fancy, beautiful or extraordinary, but it was simply a pleasant place to see a movie & I was sad to see it go. It sat vacant for a couple of years before it was demolished & a new Target store was built on that site. However, a new multiplex is planned & was in the midst of construction just 100 yards away inside Lincoln Mall (on the old Montgomery Ward site) until the recession hit 2 years ago & now it’s on hold (for now). However, the old Lincoln Mall General Cinema will always be my ‘first love’ of the cinema. -BQ (Minooka, IL)
