West Allis, WI: Paradise Theatre Facing Wrecking Ball

Posted on Wednesday, May 5th, 2010. Last Updated on Thursday, May 17th, 2012 10:26 AM by Scott Jentsch

WestAllisNOW is reporting that the Paradise Theatre in West Allis, Wisconsin may face demolition because the building is deteriorating and a new owner has not been found for the building, which is owned by the State Bank of Chilton after a foreclosure proceeding in 2009:

City officials and developers over the last several months have spent considerable time pondering the future of the Paradise Theater, which opened at 6229 W. Greenfield Ave. in 1929.

It is now increasingly possible there could be no future at all.

The city has issued a razing order for the 81-year-old building because of its current state of deterioration.

The building will need to be repaired soon if there is any chance of saving it. It could be demolished as early as this summer if no private or public financing comes through, West Allis Development Director John Stibal said.

Stibal plans to ask the council how the city should proceed. Aldermen may consider how much, if any, public money should be used to salvage the theater.
