The names Dream and Onalaska switched more than once. The Dream was listed in the 1935 FDY and the Onalaska in 1936. The Dream had been listed with 229 seats but the Onalaska was listed with only 150.

In the 1941 and 1943 editions of Film Daily Yearbook there is a 200 seat Dream Theatre listed for the town. The Onalaska Theatre is listed in the 1950 edition of F.D.Y.

First I’ve ever heard of a theater in this town.
