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.

The DVD was produced for the Johnson County Museum of History by Ange Bolton and Max Albsmeyer.

The cost of the DVD is $10; proceeds benefit the museum and the theater. It can be purchased in the gift shop on the main floor of the museum, 135 N. Main St., Franklin.
