Milwaukee Movie Theaters - Larry Widen. In the decades between World Wars, America was madly in love with the movies. In 1931, with the country in an economic depression, no fewer than 12 movie theaters operated inside a six-block district in downtown Milwaukee: the Wisconsin, Palace, Strand, Merrill, Alhambra, Garden, Warner, and Riverside lined Wisconsin Avenue between Sixth Street and the river; the Miller, White House, Empress, and Princess were on Third Street between Wisconsin Avenue and Wells Street. Attending one of the downtown movie palaces was the height of luxury in the 1920s and 1930s.

With the arrival of television for the home market, the golden age of the movie theater in Milwaukee was dead. Churches, warehouses, stores, nightspots, and other businesses now occupy the former Tivoli, Paris, Roosevelt, and Savoy Buildings. Others are simply vacant hulks, decaying from the inside out. The Elite, Regent, Lincoln, and Warner are but a few of the many silent sentinels from the days when Milwaukee was in love with the movies.

Great book about a little covered period of history and architecture.
Kazimi
Very Complete Information. Covers a reasonable stretch of time. I would recommend this for research. Wish it had more Pictures.

Milwaukee is a city of a million people making it one of the 20 largest in the country, but this book shows that, for its size, it contained more than its average of exceptional architectural jewels: the PABST, WARNER (now GRAND), ORIENTAL and late lamented EGYPTIAN being amoung the finest of their types in the nation. The Widens list some 162 structures which showed film primarily or somewhat and discuss the business, architectural, and technological trends which brought them to us. Over 100 photos grace the book in black and white while the cover features a recent color photo of the interior of the auditorium of the ORIENTAL in all its East Indian flavor. While a slim book, it is an excellent introduction to the time and place and a fine journey back in time. There are a few minor typos and ommissions, but it is an excellent work overall, done with care, artistry, and affection for its subject and a time long past. The authors plan a sequel to fill in the blanks forced upon them in the limited space alloted by their publisher, but the saga will continue in their new book when a publisher is willing. For the price, you certainly can't go wrong! The Theatre Historical Society in Elmhurst , Ill. will direct you to more detail on these and many other theatres if you inquire of them.
