The Isle Theater, Cumberland, Wisconsin

The Isle Theater is the movie theater of my youth. Somehow, it has been completely refurbished. Apparently, some angels have come to the small hamlet of Cumberland, Wisconsin and begun investing in this town.

With community support, the building has been restored and original seats have been sanded and repainted, reupholstered and reinstalled. It looks like I remember, only so much better. I remember a birthday I had featuring ET at that theater. The building is from 1907 and I always loved the tin ceiling and the sweetie seats. They are in the photo above. If you find yourself in the Cumberland area, do make the trip to this little theater. You will enjoy the nostalgia of it; I promise. For movie times and some of the history see:
