The ARC was builted and managed by Jack & Mae Kress, during its complete run. The ARC was closed in 1964, due to extension of what now is Martin Luther King Blvd, which currently runs thru the old building. The ARC seated about 700, changed programs twice weekly
and a special kid show on Saturday after. I viewed hundreds of features there, my first indoor movie experience. The ARC ran matinees daily, throughout its existance, with low admission s prices of $.35 Matinees and $.50 eve.s, child. under 12 $.l4 all times.
