The Crown Theater

New Bremen residents were introduced to motion pictures in 1913 with the opening of the community's first movie house, the Crown Theater. Ironically, the name was given long before Crown Equipment Corporation came into existence. "Talking" movies arrived on the scene in 1927 and the Crown Theater was on the cutting edge with "The Jazz Singer" starring Al Jolson.

In 1933, the building was given a new name, the Roosevelt Theater, honoring the Country's President. Over its history, the theater has gone by several different names lik the "Little Theater", the "New Bremen Theater" and today, the "Lock One Theater".

Tragedy struck the theater in 1945. On a Sunday opening between the first and second shows, a devastating fire began in the projection booth. The resulting damage was severe and although the owners rebuilt the theater, it was entering its last decade. The location later became well known as a gathering spot for local senior citizens.
