The Oriental is part of the Landmark chain which specializes in exceptional films. And if you are here Sept/Oct, check out the Milwaukee Film Festival, Whenever you go you will enjoy the excellent popcorn, the beer and wine choices, and the fabulous ambiance. The whole operation is very personal and homey (just like Milwaukee) with people who really know and care about film and are good stewards of this gem of a theater. Speaking of gems, the Oriental still has its original theater organ which is a real treat to hear in occasional concerts, curtain warmers or accompaniment to old silent films. Next time you go to a movie, take the time to enjoy one of Milwaukee's treasures.
