Cinema 5 Cafe, Stoughton, WI

Originally opened as the 670-seat single auditorium Badger Theatre, on Main Street near Division Street, today the theater is known as the Cinema Cafe, a five-screen first-run movie house and eatery. It was closed in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the owners decised in May 2020 that it would not re-open.

The little multiplex is located in a building which does little to disguise its former use as a department store. The food is OK, but nothing special. Auditoriums are shoeboxes, each with circular tables having 2 to 4 swivel chairs placed around them, with no other seating available. Sight lines are just fair, and the tables' surfaces reflect light from the screen, which can be distracting.

This seems to be one way that small town theaters can continue to exist. Kind of a Chuckie Cheese approach to the movie experience.
