TIMES CINEMA Has Time For New Owner

MILWAUKEE, WI — The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that the Times Cinema, a small single screen, single story cinema from 1935, is being bought by the brother of the woman who owns it now, in the hopes that it will be preserved to continue to show vintage films.

If it doesn’t succeed at that (it has had had rough times recently), then the new owner may convert this former Trans-Lux house to first run, though I don’t know how successful that would be with his former TOSA theatre two miles away showing first run also.

Let’s hope that there is a winning formula going here and may we see more of such limited-parking space cinemas survive.
