On January 18th, 2008, John Auble from Fox 2 News interviewed Rich Walker, Edwardsville Alderman, about the Wildey Theatre “Living History Project.” Residents were encouraged to share their memories. Movie popcorn, Jujubes, malted milk balls and lemon drops were served.
Edwardsville Retired Alderman Rich Walker is working with local historians to document the "living history" of the Wildey. They are collecting stories from people about their personal experiences at the Wildey. Please e-mail your personal story and experience about the Wildey for inclusion in the Living History Project. First date? $1 movies? Prom? Where you there when the tornado hit? Tell us your story and help keep the history of the Wildey alive for the future.
Contact Retired Alderman Rich Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org with your stories or questions about the Living History Project.
