Here is part of a March 27, 2008 article from the Lincoln Journal Star:

The name Douglas Theatres has been synonymous with movies in Lincoln for more than 50 years. But that’s going to change next month.

Marcus Corp. of Milwaukee announced Wednesday that it has agreed to acquire most of Douglas' assets for $40.5 million. The sale is expected to close next month.

The sale includes the Grand, East Park, Edgewood and SouthPointe theaters in Lincoln as well as the Omaha theaters 20 Grand and Village Pointe and the Twin Creek theaters in Bellevue. The seven theaters have 83 screens combined. Douglas has about 500 full- and part-time employees.

The 1983 photo in the link is of the Douglas 3 Theatres, which stood at the northeast corner of 13th and P in downtown Lincoln. That building had retail space under the raised lobby, and Douglas Theatres' corporate office on the floor above the lobby.
