SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - King Kong is on the loose in the Springfield area. A 200-pound, 33-foot-tall inflatable Kong vanished before dawn Thursday from the roof of the Springfield 8 movie theater, apparently snatched by thieves. "We sent a photographer over there to take some pictures this morning, and that's when we discovered it was missing," said Adam Brown, vice president of Amberg Entertainment Inc., which rented the big ape to the movie theater to promote the new "King Kong" movie.
