The opulent Sheboygan Theatre opened on February 18, 1928 with Laura LaPlante in “Finders Keepers” and 5 big time acts of vaudeville. It served as a 1,600 seat movie house for decades. It was built for the Universal Pictures chain, and in April 1930 was taken over by Warner Bros. Circuit Management Corp. In 1980 it was twinned and renamed Plaza 8 Sheboygan Cinemas I & II.
A restoration project was begun in 1996, four years after the theatre closed, when the Sheboygan Theatre was purchased by the Sheboygan Community Theatre Foundation, Inc.
The restored Sheboygan Theatre is now known as the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts.
The theatre was added to the National Register of Historic Places as well as the State of Wisconsin Register of Historic Places in 1999.
