APPLETON Theatre; Appleton, Wisconsin.

The Appleton Theater was still open in December 1967. At that time, the theater was showing a double feature of “The Jungle Book” and “Charlie the Lonesome Cougar”.

This pairing must have been nationwide as I saw the same double feature in 1967 as a six year old in Atlantic City.

The Appleton Theatre, then a Marcus Amusement Corporation operation, was sold to First Federal Savings & Loan Association of Milwaukee in 1971. It was to be demolished to make room for 22 parking spaces, according to the item in Boxoffice of September 13 that year.

This was an amazing theater! My Grandfather, Stanley Gross was Manager when they reopened after the remodel and before managing at the Appleton he managed at the Rio in Appleton.

The Appleton was a great theater. In 1970 I saw Woodstock there and the movie Joe starring Peter Boyle and Susan Sarandon.
