Who is MKE
The MKE Business Collective is a collective of other businesses, including a digital marketing firm, trust and estate attorneys, and an investment advisory firm under a roof, with room for more to join.
Being in the company of great minds in different fields would bring more benefits to your workplace, a year-round networking event.
What could be more inspiring than working in a building once used to express creativity?
FROM MOVIE THEATRE TO OFFICE SPACE
A two-story, 5,726-square-foot former movie theater on 3804 W. Vliet St. had the potential to be more.
We saw that! With a $300,000 to $450,000 budget for the renovations, a whole new environment was created from what once was a vision.
State of the art offices in an unlikely place made for professionals to feel the most productive.
After all art and business have always worked hand in hand.
The theater came to life in 1917 in a neighbourhood filled with movie theaters. On the outside the theatre looked relatively small but when indoors 575 setas could be found for the audience to enjoy the best of silent films. After a good 35 years running the theatre shut its doors
OVER THE YEARS
What was once a place of entertainment changed its image over the years from painting store to a carpet store, all the while maintaining its identity, shut behind these stores the theater remained, slowly losing it’s shape but keeping it’s memories in tact.
Over the years it has changed it’s style to fit mordern times but the charm will forever be there, for theatre lovers and descendants of the area.
A place so vibrant deserves to be brought back to life, to have a buzz to it in a new way that is mordern but keeps the charm.
HISTORY LIVES ON
History lives in the heart and mind. MKE will continue to bring history while planning for the future.
We cant always stay in the past but we can definitely enjoy the present as many did in the Lyric Theatre all those years ago.
And plan a future where we can look back and be proud of where we began.
