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.


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.
