1920s Vintage Theater Sign and Marquee Restored in West Bend, WI

The historic West Bend Theatre, originally opened in 1929, is currently undergoing a complete restoration, the centerpiece of which will be refurbishment of the large, vertical, projecting sign and theater marquee which have been West Bend icons for 90 years.

Poblocki Sign Company (West Allis, WI) is handling the sign and marquee project, with the theater’s entire restoration expected to take until the latter part of 2019. A target of early 2020 is expected for the theater’s grand opening.
