early 20th centuries theaters in small towns were cultural centers. These
theaters offered live vaudeville performances, plays performed by traveling
troupes, musical performances, educational lectures and later, motion pictures.
The Geneva Theater, built in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin in 1928, was
described by one writer as "a modern play house offering stage and screen
attractions of quality and equipped so attractively as to be a wonderful asset
to any city, particularly one the size of Lake Geneva."
our city's "temple of amusement" sits idle. Some of us would love to bring
it back to life as a cultural arts center, offering live theater, musical
performances, old movies and visual arts exhibits. With help it could
bring enjoyments like these back to our community once again.
