MILWAUKEE — The Oriental Theatre is set to begin the second of its three-phase restoration project.

Starting May 15, the theater will undergo construction as well as improving the building completely.

Some of the changes being implemented include:

  • Improved fire alarms and exit doors
  • Seats and sightlines
  • Sound quality in theaters
  • Snack options and concession stand design

While the restoration is ongoing throughout the summer, the Oriental still plans on remaining open and showcasing films.
