Interesting. So Donleys finally sold it. I know it's been for sale for a number of years. I wonder what arrangements, if any, have been made for future Union phono shows.
Best regards ... AZ*

Arcada Theatre owner Ron Onesti has lassoed a new venture – Donley’s Wild West Town in Union.

Onesti is taking over operations of the decades-old theme park, which will fittingly be renamed Onesti’s Wild West Town. Onesti is president and founder of Onesti Entertainment Corp., which operates the Arcada Theatre and Club Arcada in St. Charles. Onesti Entertainment also operates the Evanston Rocks venue.


Most of us expected this to happen but also hoped it would be later rather than sooner. But on a bright note I know our APS leadership has made provisions for this inevitability. Change is not easy but I am optimistic for the future site of a mid-country Union type sale. So don't despair! :)

Seems that the Donley’s have retained control over the real estate, etc. The deal with Onesti seems to be an “operational partnership”. And, given the Donley’s thrust into the auction business, it may well mean that the Union Show will continue for the foreseeable future.

Raphael is correct. Randy announced either last year or the year before that the auction building was a separate business from Wild West Town itself and that they would continue their business separately (a bit of a paraphrase). I wouldn't get worked up about the show ending because of the sale just yet. Perhaps we should just wait until the Donalys tell us what their plans are, then continue panic if it is bad news. I don't think it will be right away personally, but who knows.
