Hilldale movie theater to reopen for Wisconsin Film Festival

Feb 14 / Hilldale Happenings

The Cap Times | The theater at Hilldale has had several names and several owners over the years, and was known as AMC Madison 6 when it closed last November.

It will have one more name when it reopens for one week in April: Wisconsin Film Festival Hilldale.

Festival and Hilldale officials announced at a press conference Tuesday morning that the shuttered theater will host the 2023 Wisconsin Festival, which runs Thursday, April 13 through Thursday, April 20.

It’ll be the last hurrah for the theater, and the festival will fittingly show Peter Bogdanovich’s 1970 drama “The Last Picture Show” on the final night as a sendoff to the theater, which opened in 2007 as Sundance Cinemas 608.
