Although some signage resembled GCC font, this was built by L&M, who also operated the Isle in downtown Aurora. The larger house was split to compete with Plitt’s Fox Valley 4, which opened in December, 1977. Eventually, Plitt took over operation, followed by Cineplex Odeon in 1985.

Looks like it was a Mann Theatre and NOT a GCC? the CINEMA I-II-III lettering confuses me!
