This is a Sale of Assets opportunity This movie theater in downstate Illinois transports its customers back to a time when going to the movies was the height of entertainment. No expense was spared in creating this family friendly 8-Plex Theater. Simply put the owner has run out of money to finish off two additional auditoriums and to outfit out the restaurant space, which is a clean shell at the moment. This is a great opportunity for an owner/operator or another theater group looking to roll up this gem. Buy this business for a fraction of the Asset value!
