I’m not sure which city can clam the Mid-City Outdoor Theater. It was located in-between Beloit and Janesville.

According To Google Earth, It Is Closed Sometime In The Early 1990’s. According To The April 27th, 1992 Google Earth Cam, The Pathway And Parking Lot Of The Mid-City Outdoor Theatre Was Shown Clearly. But Looks Like The Screen Looks A Bit Worn Out. Not Sure.
