After four years "squatting" in a series of unoccupied houses in Greencastle (Greencastle, Indiana) while their eldest son attended DePauw college, the Ginger family settled in Indianapolis, still in extremely difficult circumstances. These experiences deeply influenced Ray Ginger's political convictions and much of his historical work: in later life he frequently recounted his childhood humiliation

based movies

Theatres (originally Parallax Theatres) was founded in 1974 by Kim Jorgensen. The first theater acquired by the chain was the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles. Jorgensen hired Steve Gilula and Gary Meyer (Gary Meyer (film executive)) in 1976, who later became stockholders, with the acquisition of the UC Theater in Berkeley, California. In the 1980s, Landmark acquired Santa Fe (Santa Fe, New Mexico)-based Movies, Inc. and Seattle-based Seven Gables. In the 1990s, Landmark Theatres was acquired by The Samuel Goldwyn Company. Landmark Theatres continued to grow throughout the 1990s and developed multiplex theatres of its own in San Francisco; Cambridge, Massachusetts; St. Louis (St. Louis, Missouri); Chicago; New York City; Atlanta; Indianapolis; and the largest one on Pico Boulevard in Los Angeles. Jorgensen later became a movie producer, selling out his interest in Landmark in 1989. Gilula and Meyer sold their interest in 1995.

In March 2006, it unveiled artist Dale Chihuly's largest blown glass exhibit, Fireworks of Glass—a glass sculpture that rises 43 feet (13 meters) tall. Children (and adults alike) can dig for "dinosaur fossils", catch a planetarium show, view the miniature trains, ride the carousel and so much more. The museum has huge holdings that are constantly rotating, so check out temporary exhibits as well. Even

original news

was the original news anchor for much of the 1960s and early 1970s, when the program was called ''NewsNight''. Crippen also hosted a children's show, ''Space Station 10.'' In 1975, former WFLA-TV anchor Arch Deal became the news director and co-anchor with Marshall Cleaver for ''Eyewitness News''. Cleaver was removed in 1977, and Deal continued to anchor until ''Action NewsCenter'', a format similar to Indianapolis station WTHR's newscasts at the time, debuted with former WTVT anchors Rod Challenger and Gary Rebstock along with Rick Moore. WLCY broadcast the first 5:30 newscast in the Tampa Bay area during the late 1970s up until September 15, 1980, when the newscast was moved to 6 p.m. Beginning in 1979, Don Harrison (previously from KMSP-TV in Minneapolis-St. Paul), Wally Kinnan and Dick Crippen were the new anchors of the Channel 10 evening newscasts. Ratings surged, making the Tampa Bay market more competitive. In June 1979, Channel 10 acquired the original sunset logo (which was later duplicated by its sister station KTSP (KSAZ-TV) in Phoenix, Arizona) along with the "Action News" format. In April 1979, the station built a taller transmission tower, improving the station's broadcasting capabilities. US 31 overlaps Interstate 65 in Jeffersonville, Indiana, after having crossed the Ohio River from Kentucky. Next, it splits off north of Jeffersonville at Clarksville (Clarksville, Indiana) and proceeds to Indianapolis. At Interstate 465 on the south side of Indianapolis, US 31 is routed onto I-465 on the east side of the city. US 31 exits I-465 (coincidentally at '''Exit 31''') in extreme southern Hamilton County, and continues northward. US 31 then passes through or near Kokomo (Kokomo, Indiana), Rochester (Rochester, Indiana), Plymouth (Plymouth, Indiana), and Lakeville (Lakeville, Indiana). As US 31 approaches southern South Bend, Indiana it converges with US 20 and proceeds westwards then north on a freeway (the St. Joseph Valley Parkway), bypassing South Bend and proceeding into Michigan. Before the Interstate era, US 31 was a major north–south highway. Interstate 65 supplants US 31 and either 31W or 31E as a through route between Indianapolis and Mobile (Mobile, Alabama). South of Indianapolis, all segments of US 31 not coinciding with Interstate 65 have been reduced to roads largely of local use. Interstate 196 now carries the route of US 31 between Holland, Michigan, and St. Joseph, Michigan. All of US 31 between Ludington, Michigan, and Indianapolis, Indiana, is divided highway—some of it is freeway, including a bypass route (bypass (road)) of South Bend, Indiana. The segment between South Bend and Indianapolis is scheduled for upgrade or replacement with Interstate-standard freeway (see U.S. Route 31 in Indiana). Environmental impact studies have shown that the fifth phase of the then-to-be-constructed freeway segment between Napier Avenue near Benton Harbor, Michigan, and I-94 (Interstate 94) may not be complete until 2015 (see St. Joseph Valley Parkway).
