The Grace Theatre opened in 1911 with seating listed at 405. The architect was Henry Hansel. The Grace Theatre was operated by Fox Theatres.

The theatre closed in 1957 and now houses a company called Damage Control Inc. (They clean up after fires, floods, etc.). Any further info on the Grace Theatre would be appreciated.

Bomb Is Exploded at Milwaukee Movie House
[Associated Press Leased Wire)
MILWAUKEE â€" A dynamite bomb was exploded in front of the Grace theater, a neighborhood movie house, at 2:55 a. m. today wrecking the front of the structure.
Paul Orsic, manager, said the only motive he could ascribe for the bombing was a disagreement with an operator who wanted to join the union.
A stick of dynamite, the fuse partly burned, was found on the roof of the theater after the blast.
