The Van Der Vaart Theatre opened September 12, 1925, and was renamed Wisconsin Theatre in 1943, when it was taken over by Warner Bros. Theatres.

Closed in 1977, it was reopened as the Stage Door Theatre in 1978. The Stage Door Theatre was closed in 1984 and the building has since been demolished to become a parking lot.

This was a Warner Brothers theater in 1946, as was the Majestic and the Sheboygan.

The Wisconsin opened on October 29, 1943, with a double feature of “My Friend Flicka” and “It Comes Up Love”.

Can anyone provide information about Sheboygan’s Unique Theater which stood at 608-612 N8th Street in 1905-1912 and, perhaps, before or after? It was the site of Groucho Marx’s third set of public performances as a member of the Eugene Leroy Trio in late-July and early-August of 1905.
