Geneva Theater 1928

 
WELCOME    In the late 19th and 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."

   Now 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.
