An Experience Venue

Built in 1929, The Bend was originally built as a Vaudeville theatre in West Bend. Over the decades, the theatre underwent many changes but always retained its rich history and iconic “West Bend” blade sign.

In 2020, the theatre was restored to its original beauty by a nonprofit group called Historic West Bend Theatre, Inc. These efforts landed The Bend a designation on the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

The Bend is now reopened to serve West Bend and the greater Milwaukee region with arts opportunities, music, theatre, comedy, movies and an experience unlike any other.
