Theater Group Leaving Utica

Posted by wlpo on September 23, 2011

The Illinois Valley is losing an entertainment destination.

The Follies Theatre is leaving Utica and opening up a larger location on Route 47 in downtown Yorkville.  The new theater will open December 1st.  The last show in Utica was done September 3rd.  Follies officials say the draw to Yorkville was it’s a fast growing area and still close enough to the Illinois Valley.  Don Zellmer says they thought about keeping both locations going but decided to concentrate their efforts in Yorkville.

Follies opened in downtown Utica four years ago.
