Nevada lost their movie theater back in ????? (anyone recall when?)

Main Street just isn't the same. At least I have great memories of the Camelot Theater from the 70's and 80's.

It is really sad that Boone is losing its movie theater. I hope someone will buy it and open it up again. If we can't get new releases -- maybe we could get movies that aren't new - but aren't out on video yet either (like the ones they show at the North Grand Mall). It would also help if what was playing at the theater was listed -- a long time ago, the shopping news would list Boone, and all the Ames theaters and what was playing and times -- they stopped doing that and I pretty much stopped going to the movies then. Yes, I know you can look it up on line - but I would rather see it in the weekly paper.

Was the Boone Theater owned by Bud Fridley? (sp?)

We drove up Story St. tonight & saw that there was a sign "opening soon" on the front of the theater.

Any ideas on who bought the place?
