Here’s a video that chronicles the Rialto Theatre in Champaign, IL. The title is subjective but was also the theatre’s slogan after it was renovated in 1938. I did this for my old boss and very good friend, John Russell who turns 79 on the Fourth of July. The Russells owned and operated the theatre for most of its 70 year history.

Mike. This is the other Mike (Michael Lynch) from across the street at the Art (circa 60’s and 70’s) Remember me? Was on this site and saw this and fell out of my chair. Such great memories. Are you on FB? I posted a couple old pics from the Art and Illini back in the good days. They have not posted yet but hope they get on. I am in LA and work for WB in case you search on FB. Take care
