Riverside Theater History
Built in 1927 and opened in 1928, the Riverside Theater has been known throughout history for bringing a wide-range of popular entertainment to Milwaukee. Originally operated as an RKO Vaudeville house, it hosted acts like Abbott & Costello, Three Stooges, Lucille Ball, and big bands like Cab Calloway and Glenn Miller. For much of the 50s, 60s and 70s it was a popular cinema and in the late 70s and 80s, it transformed for the first time to a Rock & Roll stage hosting acts like Queen, Bruce Springsteen, James Brown, and Ray Charles.

Saved from demolition numerous times in its 80+ years of existence, the Riverside is now experiencing its biggest heyday ever – helping bring life to the heart of downtown. One of the last remaining movie palaces still standing, the Riverside Theater is a national example of the powerful magic that exists in historic architecture.

The Pabst Theater Group took over operation in 2005 and have since hosted major music acts from Neil Young to Mumford & Sons. The Riverside has also become one of the nation’s premier comedy venues hosting heavy-hitters like Kevin Hart, Jon Stewart, Amy Schumer and Louis C.K. The Riverside has also continued the vaudeville tradition by leading the charge nationally on some unconventional ComicCon-like bookings like Neil deGrasse Tyson and Cast & Creators of The Walking Dead.
