Miner Theatre was never twinned, It was opened in 1948 ane the only theatre Mr. Miner built that he used his name on. It has 1848 style stadium seating (known by the “old timers” as a balcony. All renovations that have been done kept it original as possible.

correction* should state 1948 style stadium seating—not 1848

The miner was built in 1944-1948 by Architects Liebenberg and Kaplan of Minneapolis. It is in very original condition and features stadium seating in the auditorium and a lower lobby with a sunken lounge that leads to the restrooms.

The Unique theatre was located on West 2nd Street North in Ladysmith, WI. It burned shortly after the Miner Theatre opened (one of the tragedies of my youth)
