|Home: BigScreen Journal - Dubuque, IA: Local Group Wants to Re-open Kennedy Mall Cinema 6|
The Telegraph Herald in Dubuque, Iowa is reporting that a group of five friends has formed "Mindframe Independent Theaters" with the intention of re-opening the Kennedy Mall Cinema 6, which closed in May, 2007.
The local group behind Mindframe Independent Theaters wants to solve the tri-state "Oscar problem" -- the frustration some moviegoers have expressed about not seeing many nominated movies in local theaters.
Five Dubuque friends expect to sign a lease today for the former Kennedy Mall Cinema 6 and turn it into a venue for independent films and more.
They hope to open it by Sunday, Feb. 3, in time to show the Super Bowl game on a big screen.

One of the five, Grant Grudzina, formerly managed the Kennedy Mall Cinema 6 and Star Cinema. He would manage the facility.
The group plans to do some remodeling and are excited to bring back some local ownership to a Dubuque theater. They are hoping to serve audiences that are interested in Bollywood movies, Spanish-language movies, and other independent productions.
