Originally opened in 1996 by Rhyan Management Company, who also operated it for many years. This theater has undergone a couple of makeovers and in fact has moved just west of its first and second locations and is still on Route 14 about ½ mile west of Route 31.

Originally a 2-screen built around 1972, it was increased to 4 around 1980, and 3 more were added in the late 80s. The 8th screen was the old El Tovar/Raue Center downtown. The old complex was demolished in 1996 after the 16 opened. I have to wonder if the 2-screen was originally a Kerasotes as the Showplace name is generally theirs.

Does anyone have a pic of this theatre. I may have been here as a young child during a summer visit with my cousins in Crytal Lake. This is where I first saw Grease. I rememeber my cousins and I singing the songs from the movie that summer. I had a blast.

I recalled vaguely that Crystal Lake was where the teenagers get slaughtered in the Friday the 13th movies, so I looked it up. The chamber of commerce must love that.

This might have been owned by Rhyan Management, who had other locations across the northern Chicago suburbs. It never was Kerasotes. The “Showplace” name was used by several independent companies; in Evansville, Indiana, Kerasotes had to call their 16-plex “Stadium” since the local chain already called their theatres “Showplace.”
