I do remember seeing a few movies there in 1991 and 1992 “Strictly Business”, “JFK”, “Mo' Money” and “A Few Good Men”. The theatre was nice and clean during that time years before it fell apart.

It should be Regal Cinemas now since they bought it after the AMC/Kerasotes merger.

Hopefully another chain will take over like The Picture Show Entertainment, Classic Cinemas or Regal Entertainment. One time they were showing classic films (like the 600 North Michigan) and movies just out of first-run theatres.

The drive-in was located in River Grove, not River Forest. It is now part of Triton College known as the Collins Center, which includes the Richard Burton Performing Arts Center.

The Cinemark Melrose Park also contains three concession stands, an elevator (for theater #5 and #6), a video arcade, and a Studio Eats cafe.

The Old Orchard was a very nice theater especially theater 1 (which reminded me of Hillside Square theater 1) with the plush rocking chair seats. It was good while it lasted.

The Biograph was once known for showing independent films (besides the Music Box and the Fine Arts downtown). It went through several chains from Plitt to Cineplex Odeon to Loews/Cineplex to Meridian to Village Theaters.
