FDL Movie Theater Sold to Minnesota-Based Company
The Fond du Lac Movie Theater on west Scott Street will
be changing ownership. Minneapolis-based Odyssey Entertainment is purchasing the
Fond du Lac Theater, with the sale expected to close on or about April 24th.
Odyssey President Steve Tripp says they plan to work to upgrade the theater to
include “many comforts and amenities” that today’s movie goers have come to
expect. Dennis Frank, who’s family previously owned the theater says they
always ran it as a “family operation”, and that they “couldn’t be happier to
hand over the keys to a company like Odyssey who will take the theater we built
and renovate it to become the area’s premiere cinema for years to come.” Plans
are currently underway to upgrade the theater in the next four to five months. One
of the upgrades is Luxury recliners that are in the works for all eight
auditoriums – those are expected to be installed in the next 60 to 90 days. Odyssey
operates theaters in Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota and Ohio.
