In Sycamore, there's a movie theater for sale.

One of my favorite hobbies is watching movies. I enjoy the convenience of having all those choices at your figures tips at home on the couch. It makes life pretty easy.

Despite the modern technology, I still love going to the actual theater and seeing flicks on the big screen. Going back to the drive-in this summer was really cool too.

Plus, the movie theaters today are awesome. They have huge screens with a crystal clear picture, incredible sound systems, comfortable reclining chairs, wait staff, alcohol, and tons of tasty food items.

I have a special spot in my heart for the small local movie theater. I have great memories of them. Where I grew up in the suburbs, many of them had their own little complex in the downtown area. They had only a couple of screens. Most of the time it cost $1. On weekend nights, if there wasn't anything going on. My friends and I would just hit a movie. It was a lot of fun.

Even in Rockford, we had places like Colonial Village, North Towne, and CherryVale theaters. There aren't many left in the area still in operation. Sycamore has one. That's not too far from the Forest City. Guess what, it's for sale. I thought it would be cool to own a movie theater. Especially, if I won the lottery.

The Sycamore State Theatre is for sale. The owners are retiring.

"The theater is listed for sale for $750,000 on RE/MAX. According to the listing, the building has three movie theaters, five apartments, and two storefronts. All units are occupied and generating income. The building was built in 1920 and has 270,000 square feet."

To our dearest friends and supporters of the Sycamore community and beyond, we want to begin by thanking each of you for...

If there are any investors out there, I think Double T's Theatre has a nice ring to it.
