KENOSHA, WI — The Citizens Group for the Kenosha Theatre has planned an open house in the historic Kenosha Theatre for Saturday, September 14th from about 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The open house will concentrate on the restoration efforts so far, and a portion of the theater will be open for viewing.

“Unfortunately, with the theater’s current condition, we can’t open all of the building for tours right now, but we want to spark community interest and get citizens involved,” says Pete Christy, Secretary of the group. “That, and we will also have volunteers working on Saturday.”

The 2,200-seat Kenosha was built in 1927 and closed in 1963. This year’s open house will coincide with Kenosha’s first annual downtown “Maxwell Street Days” Festival.

The theater is located at 5915 6th Avenue, about 7 blocks south of Kenosha City Hall.
