About Us

The Historic West Bend Theatre, Inc. (HWBT) is a 501(c)3 incorporated in the State of Wisconsin. The non-profit organization purchased the building in July 2017 and launched a $3.5 million fundraising capital campaign to restore the 1929 Art Deco brick building. Construction began in April 2019 and the venue opened in March 2020. 


Our mission is to bring the

Historic West Bend Theatre alive

as a sparkling venue for performing arts,


classic movies,

and community functions.

It will be a gathering place for the community and a hub of entertainment.


“The Bend” is located at 125 Main Street, West Bend, Wisconsin.
