Tyrotarian Tour of the Warner Grand Theater #4
Location: The Grand Theater is located at 212 W. Wisconsin Ave.
Date & Time: October 31 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
More Information

Please join your fellow Rotarians for a tour of the Warner Grand Theater with Mark Niehaus, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra President and Executive Director. The Milwaukee Business Journal called the MSO’s project to restore and renovate the historic space “arguably one of the most significant community-based projects in Milwaukee’s recent history.”

 

Located on West Wisconsin Avenue, equidistant from the lakefront and Marquette University, the historic Warner Grand Theater is an acoustic treasure and architectural work of art.

From the modern exterior to the Art Deco lobby and the French-style theater space with stunning murals and elaborate fixtures, the Warner Grand Theater is a rich blend of aesthetics which will both inspire and delight audiences.

 

Designed by Rapp and Rapp, the theater was originally built as a movie palace in the 1930s. An advertisement for the Warner boasted, “within the dreamlike portals of this enchanted playhouse is imparted a breath of the medieval French and the ultra-modernistic where patrons will glory in the beauty of its inspiring environment.”

 

The MSO has now raised $111.7 million toward the total campaign goal of $139 million. Of the $139 million campaign goal, $89.9 million is allocated to the theater restoration and symphony center construction. The additional funds will be allocated to endowment and pension relief.

 

The Grand Theater is located at 212 West Wisconsin Avenue (53203).

 

Tours begin one block north of the theater at the “Union & Visitors” gated entrance. This is a two-story set of job site construction trailers located on West Wells Street at the midpoint between North 2nd Street and North Old World 3rd Street (see map inset). A member of the MSO staff will meet you at the gate and escort you into the trailer to sign in prior to touring the theater.

All Visitors Must:

 

Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and pants or slacks. Guests wearing shorts, skirts, or open-toed shoes will not be admitted on the tour.

Sign liability waivers for CD Smith and the MSO.

Wear provided safety gear (hard hat, high visibility vest, safety glasses) for entirety of tour.

Stay with and abide all safety officer instructions.

Please remember the Grand Theater and its surrounding area are currently an active construction site. Access to some areas of the theater may be unavailable on given days or entirely restricted. Lastly, note that there are no bathrooms or running water.

October 27th Viewing of PERSONAL STATEMENT at the 2018 Milwaukee Film Festival
Location: Oriental Theatre - Side House
Date & Time: October 27 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
More Information

We will be the Silver Sponsor of an education focused documentary, PERSONAL STATEMENT (Directed by Juliane Dressner) at the 2018 Milwaukee Film Festival. You can read a description of the film below:

 

“Follow Karoline, Enoch, and Christine – three college-bound Brooklyn-based high school seniors who want to bring all of their classmates along with them. Recognizing the lack of college guidance support in their classrooms (much the same across the country), they become the change they seek, counseling their peers through the college entrance process. An inspiring look at social justice in action, PERSONAL STATEMENT reminds us of the immense change we are all capable of creating around us.”

 

The film will screen once at three different locations and times.

 

5:30pm on Saturday, 10/27 at Oriental Theatre-Side House
6:30pm on Monday, 10/29 at Times Cinema
1:00pm on Thursday, 11/1 at Avalon Theater

 

We have 25 pairs of FREE tickets to the October 27th screening which we will give to members on a first come first serve basis. Register here to get a pair of tickets!
