“The Comique was a crude operation, with 200 chairs and a piece of white muslin tacked to the wall to serve as a screen”, Freuler said in an interview years later. “There were no fire exits, and the ventilation was so poor that the projectionist sprayed perfume in the air at regular intervals”. – Larry Widen, writing in the Milwaukee Journal. (December 6, 2005)

The former Comique has been a liquor store for many years and nothing remains to suggest its former life. It is an unremarkable frame building with wooden plank siding. Ironically, another stageless theatre exists now a few doors to its south, the Boulevard, but this recent creation within another storefront is solely a live action venue without provisions to show films.
