I worked at this theatre in the 70’s and remember when “Billy Jack” was playing for an increased price of $2.50 ($2.00 was the reg. rate)but the place was packed. It had a dual marquee that you could read from either direction you were coming from. They had self serve soda machine that mixed a fountain drink in paper cups. There was a bar just a few feet from the theater, anyone remember the name? Please e mail me. Just up the street at Galena & Stolp was the tallest building in Aurora at 14 stories and they used to have a disco in the basememt. While working at the theater I sometimes worked 10 hour weekends and walked to “Prince Castle” 10 blocks away for my lunch.
