The Oriental Theatre in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, like nearly every other movie theater in the country, closed in March 2020 due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.

Milwaukee Film, a non-profit agency which owns the theater, announced recently that the theater will remain closed until Fall 2020, even though other theaters are beginning to reopen now that the closure orders have been lifted.

While it's closed, "extensive renovations" will be performed to the main and east theaters. Work includes new seats and carpeting, restoring plaster on the ceilings and walls, and installing a 1925 Wurlitzer theater organ. Restoration of the west auditorium was completed in 2019.

Until it reopens, moviegoers in the area will need to visit one of the other nearby theaters, including the Landmark Downer Theatre just down the street and the Fox Bay Cinema Grill.
