The Woodford was an art deco house which opened in 1937. It closed in 1957 while I was a student at Eureka College. A community group decided to open it as a non-profit and sold memberships. A college group I belonged to bought a membership and I was asked to represent them on the board. We did a pretty good job of saving it, as it survived 26 years under the community aegis. It’s interesting that I remember in those early years of non-profit operation the only films we could be sure of at least breaking even on in that college town were Disneys!
