AMC closed the Cinema on July 28th, 2011. The next day would mark the first day Taylorville has had no movie screen since the mid 1920’s.

Typo in the description/name history – the correct spelling is ‘Frisina’. For a picture from the early ‘70s, when it was still a store, go to: http://gis.hpa.state.il.us/hargis/ and enter 'Frisina Building’ in the search bar. At least there’s a good excuse for the current entry, since the store destroyed the old one.

Still need to correct ‘Frisnia’ to Frisina in the description and AKA.
