The Columbia was an early photoplay house from the World War I era, the only theatre ever to serve the Uptown Kenosha business district, and it never converted to sound films. It was a family-operated showplace with a then-typical arched entrance facade. Little is known of the Columbia and photographs are rare.
It seems to have closed when the production of silent films came to a halt, and it was converted to an upscale restaurant, the Ambrose Fine Foods. It was destroyed by fire in the very early 1960s and the property was leveled to create a parking lot for a nearby bank.
