Milwaukee, WI: Avalon Theatre Planning June 2014 Opening

Posted on Thursday, February 27th, 2014 11:25 AM by Scott Jentsch

The historic Avalon Theatre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin is planning to reopen to the public in June 2014, according to an article published in the Milwaukee Business Journal:

It looks like the Avalon Theatre is headed for a June opening, and you can be one of the first customers as part of a fundraiser for the Bay View Historical Society.

Ald. Tony Zielinski, whose district includes the Avalon, is helping organize an Avalon Preview Party at Horny Goat Hideaway May 20.

Tickets to the event will also get you seats at one of three soft openings planned for the Avalon in June, Zielinski said. The Horny Goat event will include food, soda and live music.

Theater opened in 1929 with a single auditorium that seated 1,637 people. It closed in 2000 and has been the subject of many attempts and rumors of renovation and rebirth since. The theater was purchased in 2005 by Lee Barczak, who also owns the Times Theater and Rosebud Cinema Drafthouse under the parent company name of Neighborhood Theater Group.

The latest plans include a main auditorium with seating for 240 people, and a back theater for 60-80 people. That's a far cry from its glory days, but it's probably the most manageable plan that was possible for the neighborhood theater. Similar to its other two siblings, the theater will serve food items and drinks, in addition to the traditional theater concessions.
