|Home: BigScreen Journal - Fairbury, NE: Bonham Theater Closes|
The Lincoln Journal Star published an article with comments from owner Allen Hinkle and some additional information about the transition the movie theater industry is experiencing:
For years, Hinkle faced a costly digital upgrade and little interest from buyers, forcing him to close the Fairbury theater after showing “Ice Age: Continental Drift” and “The Dark Knight Rises.”
The theater has been a staple of downtown Fairbury since 1926 -- best known for its giant 33-foot screen, booming surround sound and coconut-oil popcorn.
But without an owner and in need of more than $100,000 in upgrades, it could be the last time Fairbury residents see the newest blockbuster so close to home.
