Hippodrome Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Located in downtown Milwaukee near the corner of N. 6th Street and W. Wells Street.. The Hippodrome Theatre was showing boxing films soon after it opened in 1906. It also ran other entertainments.

By the 1910’s, the building had been renovated into the Dreamland Ballroom, advertised as ‘Dreamland-The Beautiful’.

A car parking structure now stands on the site.

Not so beautiful: undated photo from the Milwaukee Public Library, but probably taken after final closing: View link
