I lived in nearby Grayslake from 1975 to 1985, ages 9 to 18. When this theater opened my family and I frequently saw movies there as the next closest indoor theater was miles away in Waukegan (The Lakehurst Cinema). I remember pestering my Mother to take me to see “Jaws” there and then regretting it. I never swam in any body of water that wasn’t a swimming pool ever again. And even then I had trepidation. Few years later, my best friends older brother took us there to see “Alien”, and needless to say I spent the remainder of my childhood awake at night. WIDE AWAKE!

This opened on March 25th, 1977 as Round Lake Commons. Its grand opening ad can be found in the photo section.
