I guess a town full of churches is good?...Seems odd that that might be the fate of the biggest theaters?..

Im just wondering out loud...I have little opinion...hehehe

Thanks for the information hon.......

I found out while reading a radio news site that Hobby Lobby also purchased this theater as well and leased it or whatever to this church.

Jerm, I had been told some time ago that SOMEONE had donated the money to Skyline to buy this theater. Is it possible that it was somewho who maybe owns Hobby Lobby who made the donation?

naw, we just made so many improvements to it that someone thought they should buy it from us. besides we were about to out grow it anyway, maybe it's time to move up to the strip. read somewhere that if your not there full time, doing 2 shows a day, then your no longer a headliner in Branson, what do think.. isn't it about time for that wannabe-- andy williams to move on and let us buy his theater, heck I never can catch him in town when i'm in branson.

LOL@ Okie....GOOD ONE! We'll definately need a bigger theater! Heck...our moles alone will take up a third of our seating! LOL (good thing we'll be able to afford to "comp" all those tickets!)

Don't forget....we HAVE to have our name on the sign ALL YEAR LONG....or our "tush is out the door". Heck, with all the talent we have on this board, we'll NEVER need to have "guests" come in! We'll probably take all the money away from the "A" list shows....our theater will be filled to capacity 365 days per year! Oh....at least that's what MY "moles" have told me. chuckle...

Thumbs up

Just remember folks...the money is here, when we decide which new theater or which parcel of land will be right for development...MONEY IS NOT A PROBLEM....

So go for it...
