Oriental Theatre closed through Thursday due to boiler problem

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Most businesses that closed during Monday and Tuesday's deep freeze are back open, but the Oriental Theatre on the city's East Side will be closed through at least Thursday, January 9th.

A boiler problem in the building has forced the closure.

Theatre staff hope to be back open for the weekend.

The Oriental was built in 1927 and is Milwaukee's only surviving movie palace.
