This twin screen theater located at Rollins Road and Route 83, in the Round Lake Plaza, was a free standing theater that opened March 25, 1977. In the early-1990’s was home to second run movies and dollar shows. It’s small lobby and small theater size attracted few people from this rural community.

I lived in nearby Grayslake from 1975 to 1985, ages 9 to 18. When this theater opened my family and I frequently saw movies there as the next closest indoor theater was miles away in Waukegan (The Lakehurst Cinema). I remember pestering my Mother to take me to see “Jaws” there and then regretting it. I never swam in any body of water that wasn’t a swimming pool ever again. And even then I had trepidation. Few years later, my best friends older brother took us there to see “Alien”, and needless to say I spent the remainder of my childhood awake at night. WIDE AWAKE!
