Walked by the old Mermac Theater today with parents. The entrance now leads to several different rooms, but they haven’t done much with the place according to the guy that was sitting on the stoop outside. There’s a small alley way with a door on the south side of the building which my dad said led to the projection room. The price for the West Bend theatre is listed on the marquee outside and above the main doors!
I talked to my mom and she said the Mermac used to be in the Washington Hotel building that is still on 6th street,but they must have renumbered the addresses. They used to call it the cowboy theater because they went there to see all the old cowboy movies! They redid the store front. The box office used to be right in front. My dad worked there as well as the West Bend Theater! It is now for sale for $198,000! Maybe lower!
