Opened as the Tosa Theatre in 1931, and was previously owned by the Milwaukee based Standard Theaters Management Corp. and Milwaukee-based Marcus Theatres chain. The theatre was purchased by Jay Hollis in 1999, who has since shown first-run films at the Rosebudwhich is in direct violation of the terms of the property’s sale.
Since that time, Marcus Corp has sued Hollis and recently offered a settlement that would have Hollis donate money to charity. Hollis has claimed that if he can’t show first-run films, the Rosebud will be forced to close.
The story was turning into something of a soap opera in the area with the determined Hollis defiant to the end and appearing in several newspapers and broadcast outlets to plead his case.
