So excited for the blade sign and the original style marquee to return to work the facade!

So Kahler Slater is the firm working on the restoration and updates of the theatre and they have shared this Virtual Reality Tour of the theatre, it’s awesome!

So excited! The progress with this gem makes my heart all a flutter! đź’“ Has anyone heard about plans for the centre building (offices above the current lobby)?

Aaron, this is amazing news! I have shared on Facebook with all my design peers to gain awareness on the project. Let’s resurrect this masterpiece!! :)

sdowns: Ever think of transferring your copy of Paul Wesley’s last organ concert recorded at the Warner/Grand (“Midnight At The Center”) to a digital file to share with the masses? I’d love to hear it in all its grandeur!

I have had the great opportunity to tour this incredible theatre and adjoining building a couple weeks ago. I am doing a ficticious design project on restoring the theatre to it’s original luster and transforming the adjacent Centre building from old office spaces into a posh boutique hotel. I established a page on Yahoo Photos to display detail photos of these buildings, please take a moment and look at this design marvel. If I had the $$ I would restore the theatre and Centre building in a heartbeat!! Enjoy!

Hi everyone—

My project has come back into focus for this fall semester. (see comment way above for more info) I am hoping that everyone that has knowledge of this building and its history will help me out. I am excitedly waiting for Larry Widen’s book to come out in September for even more information.

Jim, I hope you will help me out, if I help you out— I know a little while back you were talking about posting your photos online but worried that you’d have to keep them up on a site due to space rental fees— I have had personal photos up on the Yahoo Photos site for over 3 years, and it’s free to use their webspace! Here’s the link directly to the site— View link If you are not already a yahoo user you can sign up, but they have unlimited free storage for photos. You could then link to that site from this site… or something— they have a quick upload tool and everything… :o)

I, in other news, have only found 3 free pictures anywhere on the net.. and 2 of them are modern photos. As a student I really don’t have any cash to put into a project that I am not getting any cash out of. Are you in contact with Larry Widen, or do you have copies of that article out of Marquee that you wrote about the theatre’s grillework? please email me with any help— I have yet to get myself down to Milwaukee to the City Records Center, or SARUP’s resource center at UWM, as I am currently working for the Kohler Co. and residing in Sheboygan… However, I may get down there in the upcoming weeks to further my research.

Any advice or additional help would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance for everything.

I am doing a ficticious project (as an interior designer) for my Senior Level project and I would like to know if anyone has access to the blueprints/CAD drawings for this building— I would like to have the cinema refurbished to original splendor and add in addition a boutique type hotel above the cinema in matching Art Deco fashion. Please email me with any tidbits of information or interior photos you may have. Thanks!!
