The Nile was operated by the Heydt family until the city took it for redevelopment in the 1970’s. The site sat vacant, then became a parking lot until the 1990’s when two office buildings were developed. Joyce Heydt still owns and operates the nearby Boyd, showing first run movies. The Nile often showed comedies, monster, and horror along with an occasional blockbuster and, in my memory, attracted a lot of teenagers. The auditorium had emergency doors on the right side and, if you were quick enough, you could sneak in while others were exiting.
