Opened September 1, 1927, the Kenosha Theatre was designed by architect Larry P. Larson and was commissioned by Carl Laemmle, the founder of Universal Studios, to be operated by the Universal Pictures chain.
A Wurltzer pipe organ, Opus 1696, with a 3 manual console was shipped to this theatre on August 8, 1927. Sometime later it was sold and went to a private individual in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. The Kenosha Theatre closed on April 21, 1963.
This theatre still stands today, but has suffered severe water damage. A new roof was placed on the building in the early-2000’s which has slowed the wear and tear of time. A non-profit group has again begun the process of fundraising to try to restore this building.
