Mark your calendars for Movie and Mammo event next Thursday, October 11. Grab your girlfriends, your daughters, and your mom and make plans to attend! See photo for more details!

We’e sorry to tell you that there will once again be no movie this weekend. There is currently not a recently released movie that is family friendly for our theater. We have discovered that playing older movies is not something you would visit us at the Opera House for.

Instead we encourage you to have a movie night right in the comforts of your own home and enjoy each other company. Then plan to join our family for A FULL DAY OF FAMILY FUN this Saturday right here in your downtown Aledo!

Shop local for their many specials, join in the many kids friendly activities and new this year the “Beard Contest”. #smalltown #familyfun #shoplocal #oktoberfest

“Isle of Dogs” is a stop-motion film that received a rating of 90% on Rotten Tomatoes!

🐕When, by executive decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, 12-year-old Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.🐕

Tiffany Lundberg Local 4 News

The best popcorn popper and owner of the Aledo Opera House, Dick Maynard, passed away Tuesday, May 29th. He loved this building more than any other. In fact, one of the last things he said when it was very hard for him to speak was, tell Grandma Jennie I need to talk to her about the Opera House. He loved this community and was tickled whenever I told him how many people were still attending movies there. Thank you to Tiffany Lundberg at Channel 4 News for sharing this post. Love to all of you for supporting my grandfather and the "show" for decades.

Love,
RaeAnn Maynard Latko

Sorry to hear about the passing of a man that was such a big part of the Aledo community. I had the opportunity to interview Richard E. Maynard last year about the history of his family and the Aledo Opera House. Thought I would share his story once again. My condolences to his family, friends and the Aledo, Illinois community.

You should have one last big show!!
Great movie this weekend, "The Miracle Season:. Going Sat.
I really enjoyed and laughed a lot at last nights movie. Thanks for giving us something wholesome and light to just get away and relax.
During Halloween you should show some Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, Christopher Lee movies. Or maybe Young Frankenstein. 🎃
Totally enjoyed last night's movie, Going in Style. Thanks for bringing such great movies to town. Love coming there for a movie and eating in town. Nice local night out, low cost, short drive.
Really enjoyed watching A Dogs Purpose last night. Such a good movie and loved that we could see it in a theater right in Aledo. Thanks for providing such good entertainment locally.
