Any pics of the waterfall or fish pond/ wishing well in the lobby? It sound like the Mann/GCC Southtown in Bloomington,Mn. which also had a waterfall/wishing well in the lobby.

In the early 1960’s this theatre was remodeled. They added a waterfall in the lobby near one of the entrances to the auditorium. On the other side they added a fish pond/wishing well. A lounge area was in between with a classic 60’s TV. A curved screen was added with the hope of somday showing real cinerama films. None were ever shown here.

The Hollywood opened on Easter Sunday in 1947.

Gene Grengs owned this theatre. The main theatre was split into two theatres and the balcony had been made into a third during a remodel in the 70’s or 80’s.

Who owned this theatre? Anyone know when it opened or closed and was it an art house or what kind of theatre?
