the balcony to sending youthful high school seniors on their way into the world, the Meyer Theatre's walls have quite the
tales to tell. If you'd like to experience an historical theater that houses memories, top-notch entertainment AND a Mighty

The opening scene for Meyer Theatre began on Valentine's Day 1930. It debuted as one of the many Fox Theatres popping up
around the country. Fox Theatres Inc. spared no expense developing the over-the-top vaudeville house and movie palace of that
nostalgic era. Although the company faced bankruptcy in 1933, the theatre survived and was run as the Bay Theatre until 1998.
Unfortunately in its transformation to a triplex cinema, much of the Meyer Theatre's original decorative fixtures became hidden
or lost. The preservation project focused on retaining some of the theater's original charm and carefully recreating items
that were ruined. The Meyer Theatre is a must on your Green Bay tour and so is the renowned Lambeau
One of the grandest items associated with the Meyer
Theatre in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is the Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ - a concrete item reminiscent of days gone by. The
Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ was moved around the state of Wisconsin for more than 20 years and is now safely returned to its
original home. The organ stood as the centerpiece of the Fox Theatre, when it opened in 1930. Intended specifically for the
Fox, the pipe organ was built at a cost of $35,000. During vaudeville shows, silent films, amateur nights and intermission
sing-alongs, the organ withstood the test of time to provide entertainment. In 1975, the pipe organ was taken away from the
Green Bay theater to pave the way for the triplex cinema conversion. The organ was dismantled, making a few stops over the
years. In 1989, a Neenah, Wisconsin, gentleman bought it to prevent the organ from being sold for parts. The organ remained
in storage for over a decade. But as the Meyer Theatre's makeover began taking shape, so did the interest in returning the
organ back to its roots in Green Bay. Referencing the 1927 blueprint, the original artisans, Gollnick Custom Pipe Organs in
Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, launched the restoration process. The organ retains its original beauty with a touch of modern technology,
including a special effects console.
