R.I.P. DuPage Theater.
This was located right off of Lake Street and JFK Blvd in Addison, near Indian Trail Jr. High School. It was turned into an emergency medical center and I believe they are still using the same building to this day.
I would love to see construction photos of the Elk Grove Theatre now that the new work is being done! Would also love to know what the plans are once everything is complete!
This is great news! I can’t wait to see yet another ‘new’ Elk Grove Theatre!
A shame. This theatre gets put out of business thanks to Northgate and then Northgate goes under due their own miscalculation of trying to go first-run. Now we have neither. :(
I’ve always felt this place killed itself with the attempt to go first-run.
I remember it always being crowded during its initial phase as a second-run theatre, but it went completely DEAD when they attempted to go first-run (although I did see a few films there during that time and their presentation was very nice – good projectionists), and then it was still pretty empty when they attempted to ‘recover’ and go back to second-run (even lowering the prices to $1.00, all shows, every day).
I could be wrong, but it seems like they had a good thing and then ruined it by trying to change things and were never able to bounce back. A shame – it was a nice place.
