Hub Theater; Rochelle, Il

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Opened in 1931, this nearly 950-seat Art Deco-style theater operated into the 1950’s. It was originally part of the Alger Theaters chain.

During the 1980’s, the Hub Theater was split into three screens, by twinning the main auditorium and closing off the balcony. It continued to operate as a first-run movie house until early-2011.

Rochelle is a really nice small city to visit. Do like I’ve done. Spend a day at the Rochelle Railroad Park (a busy crossing of the BNSF and UP Railroads), and then take in a movie at this neat (albeit subdivided) theatre.

This theatre was recently used in the movie “AT ANY PRICE” starring Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid (released April 2012). The movie was shot in DeKalb Co.
