Sad to see it closed. I worked there from 91 – 96 as both a usher and projectionist. I remember a few times seeing movies with my buddies after the bars closed. I had keys. It was strictly verboten but fun as hell. I remember seeing twister at about 3 in the morning and I completly cranked those speakers.
I remember my parents taking me and my brother and sister to see Sinbad and the eye of the tiger there in 1977.
I have very distinct childhood memorys of the park theatre growing up in the 70’s. I remember between movies they would play music. Gershwin’s Rhapsody in blue was one of the songs. I always think of the park when I hear that. I also remember the clock over the Exit on the left side of the screen. It was a glow in the dark Art deco clock that advertised “waukesha taxi”. I always wanted that clock. I think the decor was light blueish/green. I was sad when it burnt down.
