Unfavorite 1 person favorited this theater

The Southgate Quad Theatre opened in April 1973. The largest screen seated 900, and the smallest screen seated 350. Terrific four-plex. Great “B” movies as well as the premiere of “The Towering Inferno”.

I did not know that there was a Milwaukie in Oregon. Do you suppose there is a Portlend in Wisconsin?

Yes there is a Portland, Wisconsin.

Portland is a town in Dodge County, Wisconsin, United States. The population was 1,106 at the 2000 census.

Does anyone know if there is a theater in Portland?

Here is a recent pic of where the Southgate Theatre used to stand. Leveled and now a parking lot.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin also had a Southgate Theater which has been replaced by a new Southgate multiplex.

There was a Victory Theater in Milwaukie in 1963, misspelled as Milwaukee (like the other one) in the motion picture almanac of that year. The operator was Moyer Theaters out of Portland.

Actually…the Moyer’s owned the building but Henry Luchs owned the business. I am his daughter and I work the Victory Theater from ’59 to ’65. He sold the business in late 60’s but continued to own two drive-ins and another walk-in.
