For Milwaukee, the rise of television forever ended their golden age of movie theaters. Residents looked on helplessly as their city, once the home of 90 single-screen theaters, lost film house after film house. In this new Images of America entry, local historian Larry Widen (Entertainment in Early Milwaukee) visually charts the rise and fall of cinema venues in Milwaukee and shows how many of these historic centers have been converted to other public uses.
