The closure of the Illinois Valley Cinemas in 1996 left one movie house still operating in LaSalle, and it was the Showplace Cinemas (former Kerasotes/GKC house; also a twin-screener) nearby (until closure sometime in the mid-2000s).

The Illinois Valley Cinemas was once operated by Network Cinema Corporation and lastly by GKC Theatres.
