Here is an item in Boxoffice magazine, April 1950. Maybe Tower is an aka?

Prophettstown, Ill.-The Tower here has been reopened after redecorations and renovation by the Marchesi brothers, owners. The house, built in the late 1930s, now boasts two huge modern floral patterns painted in fluorescent lacquer on the theater walls. Interior decorations were designed by Alex Claesson of Chicago, professional theater interior decorator.

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