Title

The Historic Al. Ringling Theatre in Baraboo, Wisconsin

Description

The Al. Ringling Theatre located in Baraboo, Wisconsin, was built in 1915 by the oldest of the famed circus brothers. Styled after the opera house at Versailles, the theatre is one of the first “Movie Palaces.” This slide show and commentary presents the history of the theatre from ground breaking to the present. “America’s prettiest playhouse,” as it was called, had decayed over the years and was saved from the wrecking ball by volunteers and supporters. The theatre finally got restored in 2015, one hundred years after it was built.
