Tomah Theatre, Tomah, WI

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Tomah Theatre opened prior to the early-1930’s with seating listed at 441. It was operated by S&M Theatres which later became the Marcus Theatre chain. They later opened the Erwin Theatre which was directly across the street from the Tomah Theatre.

No closing time line for the Tomah Theatre, but it was still operating in 1950. The building is still standing with the front of the building retrofitted for other purposes.

The Tomah (Tee Pee Supper Club) is located some distance away (several blocks) from the site of the Irwin on Superior Ave.
