Opened Sept 1, 1927, the Kenosha Theater was designed by architect Larry P. Larson and was commissioned by Carl Laemmle, the founder of Universal Studios.
A Wurltzer pipe organ, Opus 1696, with a 3 manual console was shipped to this theater on August 8, 1927. Sometime later it was sold and went to a private individual in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. The Kenosha Theater closed on April 21, 1963.
This theater still stands today, but has suffered severe water damage. A new roof was placed on the building 5 years ago 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.
