Amuse U Theatre, Springfield, IL (Abe's Old Hat Antiques)

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Amuse U, owned by my grandfather, was a small and very popular downtown movie house showing only silent movies. It was started in 1913 and closed in 1930, probably caused by a combination of the advent of “talkies” and the Depression.

I just posted a photo that I took in May 2010. At that time, the building housed Abe’s Old Hat Antiques and Gifts.
