The Geneva 4 Theatre in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin last showed movies in 2011. It was purchased in 2013 and the new owners had initially wanted to open an antique market, but later changed their plans to make the theater a performance venue. According to a recent article published in the Lake Geneva Regional News, those plans didn't work out and the building is up for sale:

The landmark building, built in 1928, was bought in April 2013 by William and Kathy Jachimek of Phoenix, Ariz.

Their intention was to transform the movie theater into a dinner theater. Some work was done on the roof and interior.

However, on July 21, the Jachimeks put the building back on the market with a $1.1 million price tag.

The building was listed with Lake Geneva Area Realty Inc.

Attempts to reach the Jachimeks were unsuccessful.

Ken Etten, president of the nonprofit Friends of Geneva Theater, said some local people had expressed interest in the building. Now is the time to find out how deep that interest runs, he said.

“We’re certainly hoping it will give the building a new opportunity,” Etten said recently. “We’d love to see it as a performing arts venue.” Etten said Friends of Geneva Theater is not planning on disbanding. He said the group will help find a buyer or attempt to raise enough money to buy the building itself.

Until someone steps up, the only movie theater in town is the Showboat of Lyons. The Plaza Theater in Burlington is about ten miles away.
