This makes me sick. Bob Kolkhorst was the chief and installed the booth. I left Kankakee and moved there in 77 to help Bob, a good friend of mine. I was trained and became a projectionist in Springfield in 74. I was there when it open and I wish I could be there to see it close. How sad…

Aside from the bargain prices, this one probably will not be much missed. I attended a few showings there; it struck me as a most likely having been former twin that had been chopped up into five small cinemas, just non-descript shoeboxes with small screens. The lobby was little more than a bland foyer with a small concession area. It’s too bad, though, that bargain cinemas are a dying breed.
