RIPON, WI — It was in 1935 that Ben Marcus opened the Campus Theatre and the company he founded still operates this single screen house as well as hundreds of other screens in seven states. The anniversary was marked by the installation of a new marquee, a replica of the original.

The theater has been “a very important feature for our historic downtown,” said Price, executive director of the Ripon Chamber of Commerce.

After almost eight decades — and surprisingly few changes — it’s still an asset for attracting tourists, shoppers and diners.
