does anyone have any pictures of the inside of this theater (before it became the Waukesha Civic theatre) that they could post?

Here is an item from Boxoffice magazine, November 1947:

WAUKESHA-“Forever Amber” has folded at the Pix Theater because of a lack of attendance at the $1.20 admission figure. The film had also been target of an attack by a Waukesha Catholic priest.

I remember this theatre was a porn house in the mid 70’s, but I later saw ‘Pete’s Dragon’ here in ‘77/'78. I remember the first two Friday the 13ths playing in quick succession – maybe they re-released the first right before the second came out?

The ceiling of this theatre was stained and falling apart in the early-mid 80’s. It was pretty scary for kids to go there.
