It was originally a single screen Jerry Lewis theatre. Commonwealth purchased it early 70’s In March of 82 it was remodeled and made a twin by commonwealth theatres. From there commonwealth …. United artist…. in 94 first international theatres ..(Ron Leslie). Added 3 additional screens. Carmine stepped in 96 or 97. It is now AMC. GREAT THEATRE. Family oriented and AMC has done a great job with renovations. Strongly reccomend the yankton 5.

I worked with Commonwealth from 1970 until is demise, stayed on with UA, then with Ron Leslie {AMC} Internation theater chain, then Carmike stepped in. time to move on after 25 years.
Would love to catch up with Jack, Richard Ytell, John Lightner, Don Ireland. So very sorry to hear about Hal. Life was never the same after CW for him. He was a good man. Actually, there were many good people that I thank God for their nurturing and support.
Bless you all
