New marquee for the born-again Rivoli

CEDARBURG, WI — Longtime theatre marquee-builder Poblocki Sign Company of West Allis, WI, has been contracted for a $60,000 marquee at the 1936 Rivoli Theatre in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. (Among many others, Poblocki built the 1993 marquee for Kenosha’s 1922 Orpheum Theatre.)

In a twist of fate, company owner Jerry Poblocki told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he attended the Rivoli’s January 1936 opening program.
