In 1963, the Marchesi brothers owned the Amboy. August Marchesi was president and film buyer. Other Marchesi theaters in Illinois were the Times in Savanna and the Town in Prophetstown.

Several years ago, I saw a Bronze plaque on the front of an old Bld. in Amboy on Main St. Home of The first Carson Pirie Scott store.
