Park Theatre to Get Restoration
RACINE, WI — The Park Theatre was purchased in June of 2004 by the Westbury Group LLC, headed by a local man very much interested in theater preservation.
The theater will receive a complete restoration. Two store fronts will be incorporated into a much needed lobby and restroom expansion. The apartments located on the second floor will provide space for a new restaurant.
When the theater was originally opened in 1920 it was named the Capitol, when the restoration is completed, it will be called the Capitol Theatre for the Performing Arts.
Estimated opening date is November 2005.
