The Millennium Cinema was built in 2000 by Lorri and Jim Rosemeyer, lifelong residents of Platteville. "We felt there was a need for a state of the art complex that could provide the area with the latest Hollywood had to offer. While, still giving our customers the hometown feel that they are accustomed to." Jim Rosemeyer says.
In 2007, the Millennium Cinema joined the Avalon, in Platteville, the Grantland, in Lancaster, and the Dodge Theater, in Dodgeville, as part of a family of movie theaters. Duane and Michele DeYoung purchased the Millennium from the Rosemeyers in April of 2007.
Over the years the Millennium Cinema has positioned itself on the forfront of the entertainment business, from hosting all inclusive birthday parties, renting out theaters for business meetings, and playing videogames, such as XBOX and Playstation, on the big screen, to hosting Post Proms and other large events. Whatever your entertainment needs may be, the Millennium Cinema is the answer.
In 1930 the Tracy family opened a state of the art movie theatre. Known as the Avalon . Like the other movie theatres of the day it was a large single screenmovie palace. The Avalon closed its doors in 1990. A group of concerned Platteville residents decided to try and revive the old theatre.
They eventually formed Building Platteville Inc. and proceeded to raise money needed to renovate and remodel this historic building that had been so important to the life of a small rural community. They were successful and in 1994 the Avalon reopened as a modern tri-plex. The people of Platteville have a theatre that the entire community can be proud of and call their own. Come see one of Hollywood's latest hits tonight at the Avalon-Platteville family theatre. Oh and don't forget the hot fresh popcorn and a cold soda with free same day refills.
