14-screen monstrosity in an overscaled mixed use development in the South Loop. The Kerasotes chain started with a single nickelodeon in Springfield, IL in 1909, ultimately growing to almost 100 facilities, primarily in the Midwest.

It's really hard to talk about morality and war in the same sentence. Where was the morality in the bombing of Coventry, or the bombing of Dresden, or the Bataan Death March, or the Rape of Nanking, or the bombing of Pearl Harbor?
