Dodge Theatre, Dodgeville, WI - sign

The Dodge Theatre opened June 8, 1935. It is one of the few independently-operated single-screen movie houses still open in Wisconsin. This old-fashioned theatre with a large screen screens first-run features and was one of the three movie theatres making up the Blutree Theatres chain (the Grantland Theatre in Lancaster and the Avalon Theatre in Platteville are the other two). It is now operated by State Theatres.

Cool little theatre. Saw The Mask here when passing thru in the early 1990s.

I visited the Dodge Theatre in June of 2021 and was informed by the owner that the theatre is for sale. It’s a small theatre seating approximately 150 people. There is no balcony. A steel spiral stair case leads to the projection booth. When covid was at its worst the theatre was closed but made some revenue by selling popcorn to the towns residents. The towns people were supposedly very supportive of this effort. The theatre has a nice marquee with neon and milk glass. It is, as mentioned above, still part of the State Theatre Chain.

Before remodeling, this was the Iowa Automobile Company dealership, built in 1920 by the Woerpel brothers. The garage at rear, largely intact, became a tavern, which is the current use.
