Information for this tour was contributed by Darren Snow.

Named after the founder of the International Order of Odd Fellows, the 1150-seat Wildey served as an IOOF hall as well as a cinema. The Plitt chain ran it as a 99c show in its last days, and the final show was The Big Chill. (It was always officially known as "The Wildey" rather than "Wildey Theatre.")
