Appleton, WI: The Big Picture Theater to Close October 15th

Posted on Wednesday, October 11th, 2006 and updated on Wednesday, October 11th, 2006 3:06 PM

The Appleton Post-Crescent is reporting that the Big Picture theater in Appleton will be closing after its last movie on October 15, 2006.

The large format movie theater at 215 E. Washington St. will run its previously scheduled foreign film and a regular slate of movies through next week, but then will close.

Co-owners Jim and Michelle Bork made the announcement in an exclusive interview this afternoon with The Post-Crescent. The paper chose to not post the story on its Web site until late Friday to give the couple time to tell their staff of 13 employees.

The theater’s closure was because of finances, Jim Bork said.

"It’s basically not enough attendance to make it financially viable,” said Bork, who is president of Big Picture Concepts, the theater’s operating company. “We have no more resources to keep it going."

The theater opened in March 2005. Click the Read link below for the full story.
