Opened as the Century Theatre and changed names when Atlas Theatres took over operations. Seating was listed at 365

The Atlas Theatre closed in 1966 and has since been demolished. Any further information on the Atlas/Century would be appreciated.

Boxoffice of May 28, 1949, said that the Atlas Theatre in Milwaukee was being remodeled, and would have a new floor, plumbing, heating and air conditioning, and a new front, among other changes. The architect for the project was Myles Belongia.
