The original name of this historic theater is the Grand Opera House. Built by G. F. Andrae between 1893-1894, the vaudeville/stage show theater closed in 1915.
In 1920, it was reopened as the Majestic Theater and in the mid-1920’s it was taken over by J.P. Adler of the Adler Theater Co. who opened the Majestic Roseland (a dance palace) on the second floor. In 1928 the Wisconsin Amusement Co. (now Fox Corp.) took over the operation of the theater and changed its name to the Fox Theater.
Remaining popular for the next six decades, the theater was last operated by Rogers Cinemas. It was kept mostly the same way, but in 1982, a previously added section of the theater was removed. Shortly afterwards, in 1985, the movie house was closed and has never reopened.
A number of groups have tried to find a use for the old Fox Theater, but so far they have been unsuccessful.
