Welcome to the Arlee Theatre in Mason City Illinois. Experience an old time movie theater in the art deco style that was still using an original projector from the 1930s. We were there to film the final showing of a movie on film. Get a rare look behind the scenes and see how 80 year old technology performed reliably for years. However, the story doesn't end here. Find out how a not-for-profit movie house is still open to the public and how they funded a state of the art 4K resolution projection system. Go back in time and enjoy a beautiful indoor theatre with the latest technology. Meet John and Gaye Maxson. This program aired on "The Spiel" on Fox 23 serving southern Illinois, Southern Indiana, Missouri, western Kentucky and western Tennessee.
