As of August 2023, Google Streetview shows this theatre building is still in existence at 318-3 Main Street with the name clearly visible on the facade. It appears to have been converted to apartments.

The January 2, 1962 issue of Boxoffice had news about this house that had been owned by the local government:

“Plum City Theatre Sold

“PLUM CITY, WIS.—The Plum City Theatre, built in 1938, has been sold by village trustees to Jim Glaus, a local merchant, who plans to remodel the upstairs into a store. The village will have free use of the basement for elections and meetings for 20 years. The theatre has been closed for several years.”

An item in the June 18, 1955 Boxoffice had said that “[t]he theatre at Plum city is being kept open through the sponsorship of the local businessmen.” Such sponsorship must have failed not long after that. It seems unlikely that anybody would have been willing or able to underwrite the expense of converting the house for the wide screen formats that were rapidly displacing the standard 35mm films.
