Here’s a link to the listing on the theater. There are a few pictures of the inside.

Drove by the Crescent Pitcher Show this past weekend and it is sadly now closed.

From their Facebook Page: It is with a heavy heart and great trepidation that I must tell you it is time to close our beloved theater. You, our loyal customers, have been wonderfully supportive over the years. I have had the opportunity to meet some of the greatest people during this adventure. I have the best crew of employees anyone could ever ask for. I could never have gotten this far without all of them. I love you guys like family and I hope we stay close! I have made a pile of great friends and will always consider Shawano my home away from home. Heck, I met the best girl EVER right here at the Crescent, and together we have created a great marriage and a wonderful family. Believe me when I tell you that this dream died hard and with great financial and emotional consequence to me and my family. I am tired, worn out, and just plain beaten down by the struggle to keep this little independent theater going.

No wonder I couldn’t find it. The name of the city needs to be corrected. Here is another photo:

The grand opening was March 1, 1915.
The seating capacity was originally 500.

The correct spelling is Shawano.
