In a brick building originally the Cedarburg General Store, built in the late 1880s by area businessman Friedrich Boerner, the Rivoli Theatre opened in 1936 with a plain but attractive white/black Art Deco Vitrolite facade and angular marquee. At some point in the 1970’s the facade was altered to the then-trendy “mansard look”.
In late-2005, a preservation group from the Cedarburg community became active in raising funds to restore a 1930’s appearance to the building, and in December of 2005 they announced that approximately $800,000 had been raised to that point and secured the services of a noted Wisconsin architectural firm for design proposals.
Full restoration of the facade came in Summer 2008 and the Rivoli Theatre is now a stunning highlight to behold on Washington Avenue.
