Opened as the Savoy Theatre in 1914 on Center Street between 26th and 27th Streets, this theater was renamed the Oasis Theatre by the 1960’s.
In the late-1960’s, the Black Panthers protested the Oasis Theatre, for what it felt was the movie house’s racist policies towards African-American patrons. The Oasis Theatre closed in 1975. The former theatre later housed a bar, and is now home to the Wisconsin Black Historical Society.
