The Arlington Theaters, 53 S. Evergreen Ave. in Arlington Heights, closed Sunday after it was built as part of the Arlington Town Square in 1999, right next to a 14-story luxury condominium high rise — the last Chicago area high rise built in the 20th Century. Negotiations failed recently, and The Cardinal — Arlingtoncardinal.com immediately began receiving tips yesterday from residents regarding the closure.
John Scaletta, who has owned Arlington Theater since it opened, had been negotiating for about a year to renew the lease and install mandatory digital technology upgrades. By late 2013 all theaters that want to show New Releases from movie studios will need digital projectors and other digitally-related equipment to function.
John Scaletta is also a Village of Arlington Heights Trustee. About 25 employees are also affected by the closing of the theater.
