Built as an auto dealership in the 1920’s, the building was converted into a movie theater in the 1940’s. During the late-1980’s, the West Theatre became a brew'n'view style movie theater called the West Pitcher Show.

Most recently, known as the Historic West Theatre, it shows second-run, independent and foreign features. It also hosts live entertainment and is also used as a dance club after the last movie is screened. The West Theatre is the only art house in all of northeastern Wisconsin.

A posting in 2004 on the West’s website announced that the theater will be closing soon, leaving the Green Bay region, at least for now, without a venue for art house films.
