The Grand Today

The Grand Today

In 1992, the theatre was purchased by Fridley Corporation and became a first run cinema once again. This continued for 12 years until competition from modern multiplexes forced the theatre to close once again. The Fridleys announced that they would donate the building to a non-profit organization. A small group of dedicated business owners banded together to form “The Grand Foundation, Inc.” to save the last surviving movie palace in Grand Island.
