REEDSBURG – Elmer V. Krueger, age 92, of Reedsburg, died on Saturday, Dec. 17, 2005, in his home. He was born July 17, 1913, in Princeton, Wis., the son of Emil and Pauline (Radtke) Krueger. Elmer was a 1933 graduate of Princeton High School. He then farmed the family farm for 25 years until becoming involved in the theater business. He will be remembered for showing free outdoor movies for many years. Elmer operated movie theaters in Princeton, Muscoda, Viroqua, Edgerton, Plainfield and Reedsburg. He operated the Badger Theatre in Reedsburg from November 1960 until his retirement in 2000. Elmer was always willing to reach out and help others whenever possible.

I am doing some research on a theatre pipe organ that was supposedly installed in the Badger Theatre in Reedsburg, WI. in the 1920’s.

Bryan, who made the above post re: the Badger Theatre, mentioned that “This 500 seat theatre had a pipe organ,….” and I would like to contact him (Bryan) and ask him where he got this information. How would I get in touch with him? Any one else who has any information about this organ can get in touch with me at: on February 19, 2012 at 9:32 am

In 2011, the building was housing the Good Times Bar.

The link is no longer valid. This former theater has now been turned into a bar called Burg.
