Chicago based Kerasotes Showplace Theatres, LLC was founded in 1909 when Gus Kerasotes opened his first nickelodeon, the Royal, in Springfield, Illinois. Louis and Nicholas Kerasotes, Gus’ sons, later led the business as Kerasotes Theatres grew to a regional company with 50 theatres by the mid 1960’s. Today Kerasotes is principally managed by third generation family, Tony and Dean Kerasotes, who have led the company’s aggressive growth since 1985. Several current projects highlight the company’s emphasis on the Chicago market. Two of the projects currently under construction, ShowPlace 12 at the Golf Mill Center in Niles and Showplace 14 in Cicero, will open in the fall of this year. Today, Kerasotes Showplace Theatres is the nation’s 7th largest exhibitor operating 79 theatres
with 659 screens in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Iowa, and Ohio.
