Golden Rondelle Theater

Located in the administration complex of S.C. Johnson & Son (of Johnson Wax Polish fame). The building was originally built for the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair where it was used to screen the award winning movie “To Be Alive!”. The radically designed round building was designed by architectural firm Taliesin Associated Architects, the successor firm to that of Frank Lloyd Wright.

It was dismantled and moved to Racine to join the Frank Lloyd Wright designed headquarters buildings which are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places & is a U.S. National Landmark. “To Be Alive!” is still occasionally screened. Although not generally open to the public, it is envisaged in the near future to have public screenings in the theatre.
