OnMilwaukee.com has an article concerning updates about the fate of the Grand Cinemas in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, as well as some additional photos as a follow-up to its original Urban Spelunking article from 2016.

Last December, as soon as news emerged that the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra wants to buy the gorgeous Art Deco former Warner/Grand movie palace at 212 W. Wisconsin Ave., we went inside to offer you your first look at the place in decades.

Recently, we got an update from the MSO about the status of its plan to restore the theater as its new home, and they invited us back inside to take some more photographs.

According to the MSO's Erin Kogler, the organization has raised a large chunk of its goal of $120 million to purchase and restore the theater, fund an endowment and pay off a pension liability.

"Right now the MSO has secured more than $80 million in pledges and gifts for the project," Kogler told OnMilwaukee.

"We are still on our critical pathway toward opening in September 2019, and the project is continuing to progress as we meet our milestones. As you know, we are working with Kahler Slater, and we are finalizing plans and details of the build."
