ELMHURST – The League of Historic American Theatres recently presented Classic Cinemas owners Willis and Shirley Johnson with the Outstanding Historic Theatre Award for the York Theatre in Elmhurst.

The award, which was presented at the 2014 annual Conference at the New York City Center, recognizes a theatre that demonstrates excellence through its community spirit, quality of programs and services as well as quality of the restoration or rehabilitation of its historic structure, according to a theater news release.

Built in 1924, the York Theatre, 150 N. York St., is Classic Cinemas’ second oldest theatre. The company acquired the theatre in 1982, and an extensive renovation was done in 1991. Several renovation projects later, the theater now has 10 auditoriums and an LED marquee, the release said.
