The Amigo actually started out as the Amigo Twin, in approximately the mid- to late-1970s, I think. It was subsequently expanded in phases, first to a triplex, then to a five-plex, then to 7 and 9 screens as listed above. (I could be slightly wrong on the exact details, which I am repeating from memory.) For many years, adjacent to the Amigo theater was a drive-in called the Cisco; the projection/concessions building was still there as recently as a few years ago. I went to high school in Bemidji in the late-1980s, when the Amigo had five screens. I’m eager to see the newly remodeled theater.
