This was indeed a great place. I think I saw every Disney movie there from 1974 until it closed!!!
Thanks for posting such cool pictures. It’s great to document the current movie playing as well. I miss the place. What an asset to NW Indiana. Great memories of the Town Theatre!!
I have so many fond memories of the Town Theatre. What a treasure to Highland and Northwest Indiana! It should be preserved.
We would go to Highland from neighboring Munster, Indiana (probably in the 80’s). Mostly to see foreign and independent films. I also remember our foreign language teachers taking us there to watch films…and also offer extra credit if we saw things at the Town.
The intermission was incredible! Just thinking about it makes me want a Black Forest Cake!
I remember the Kennedy Theater quite well from the late 80’s. My friends and I would drive over to the Kennedy from Munster, Indiana. This was soon after getting my driver license and a car. Must have been about 86-87.
We would go to the Kennedy for cheap movies and double features. I think we paid about .50 to a $1. The movies we saw were definately not first rate…yet fun. I believe they included “April Fools Day” (teenagers in a deserted mansion are being killed off one by one), Adventures in Babysitting (Elisabeth Shue), and Can’t Buy Me Love.
The theater still had it’s rocking chairs (you had to be careful where you sat..SPRINGS!)and picture of President Kennedy was still there. Ironically, I work in Dallas just blocks from where Kennedy was murdered.
