Movie about theater for sale at museum




A DVD about the history of Franklin’s Artcraft Theatre is available for sale at the Johnson County Museum of History.

“The Historic Artcraft Theatre of Franklin, Indiana: Celebrating 90 Years of Entertainment” tells the stories of the Artcraft through oral histories, behind-the-scenes tours, vintage photographs and artifacts.

The video segments include profiles of the “Popcorn Lady” Irene Petro, who worked at the concession counter for more than 30 years; and Trueman Rembusch, the colorful owner of the theater in its heyday.

The video also demonstrates the 1950s-era projectors, which are both still used at the theater.
