|Home: BigScreen Journal - Naperville, IL: Hollywood Palms Opens with Thematic Auditoriums, Unique Lobby, Celebrity Events|
The Hollywood Palms movie theater opened last week in Naperville, Illinois, and it's not your average run-of-the-mill multiplex! The lobby is decorated with wooden archways, antique statues, and a large waterfall, and the auditoriums have themes, like Underwater, Mayan Temple, Chinese, Animation, Egypt, and The Wizard of Oz, where the castle that belonged to the Wicked Witch of the West is replicated, complete with flying monkeys.
WGN-TV has some video of the new theater and an interview with the owner. You can see this video below, and clicking on the Read link will take you to the WGN-TV web site, which has a transcript of the video as well.
The theater isn't just decorated nicely with nothing else to offer, however. Like their sister location, the Hollywood Blvd. in Woodridge, the Hollywood Palms offers a full restaurant and bar with dining service at your seat.
The theater is also hosting several events in the upcoming months, where celebrities will be present to sign autographs before a movie that they starred in. Examples include:
|Wayne's World with host Tia Carrere||October 9 - 11, 2009|
