Come Celebrate The History of Freeport Made Toys At The Lindo

Freeport, Illinois – Mark your calendar for our fundraiser that benefits the SCHS Arcade Collection. On Monday, April 11th, the Lindo Theatre is sponsoring an event that will get the word out about our collection by featuring a movie called “Earthworm Tractors.”

This 1930s comedy features many action scenes with Caterpillar Tractors. It was such a big hit when it came to Freeport that many local businesses had window displays of Arcade toy tractors. It helped make Arcade’s toy Caterpillar Tractor one of the most popular.

The event will start at 6:30, with a reception in the party room at the theatre and Arcade toys on display. At 7pm, we will have a short presentation about the museum collection, and then the movie will start at 7:30pm. The reception room will be open again after the movie.

Come, enjoy, and support your SCHS and Lindo Theatre. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased in advance at the theatre or museum gift shop, or at the door.
