The Fort Theatre was part of the Montfort Community Center, built in 1934-35 with funding from the Works Progress Administration. It was designed by architect Joseph G. Durrant of Boscobel, Wisconsin. Durrant designed another streamline modern community center/theater project for Boscobel the same year. Unlike the Fort Theatre, Boscobel’s Blaine Theatre is still in operation and largely intact.
