RACINE, WI — Demolition began on Monday, July 6th, 2009 of theRegency Value Cinemas.

The movie screen had been torn down, the seats were empty and the ruins were real — the handiwork of a yellow Caterpillar 235C there on Monday to begin demolishing the theater at 5230 Durand Ave., which closed in mid-April. Azarian Wrecking is in charge of the demolition, and is expected to be there until the end of next week.

Randy Jansen, 44, looked on with a camera around his neck.

“If I’d have known the seats were in there I’d have said "I’ll buy a row,”‘ said Jansen, there to take pictures for his wife Melissa, who worked at the theater for 15 years.
