Anything to do in Milwaukee on a Sunday night?

We're staying in Milwaukee as a treat to my teenage son and his friends who are WWE fans- they'll be attending the show at Bradley Center. We're staying at Hampton Inn Downtown on Wisconsin Ave. My husband and I would like to make our own plans for the evening but I'm having a hard time finding anything to do on Sunday night on any of the "events" calendars. Any suggestions? We'd even be ok with a movie...any nice movie theaters in that area?

Here is the link to the events list from the Milwaukee Journal website.


You may find other listings at www.expressmilwaukee.com or www.onmilwaukee.com .

There are no movie theaters in downtown Milwaukee. You could go north to Bayshore Mall or west to the Marcus Majestic theater, but they are a 20 or 30 minute drive from downtown if you have a car.

The Potowatomi Casino is just a few minutes from downtown, if you're feelin lucky.

And of course there are many good restaurants downtown if you just want to enjoy a leisurely dinner.

Milwaukee has several excellent theater companies. I recommend googling The Milwaukee Rep (three different stages), Renaissance Theatreworks, the Milwaukee Chamber Theater, Next Act, Skylight Opera Theatre, In Tandem. There's also the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the Milwaukee Ballet.

If you can narrow down what type of event you're looking for live music or?

The IPIC theater at BayShore, just a five to ten minute drive from downtown, has a bowling alley and a nice theater. I might also suggest the Oriental Theater, which is a Landmark theater playing excellent independent films.

I also second our amazing theater groups - in particular The Milwaukee Repertory Theater. See what's playing in the Stackner Cabaret. I believe they also give discounted tickets a few hours before showtime.

Not sure if Comedysportz does any Sunday night shows....

Lastly check the Pabst Theater, Riverside or Turner Hall to see if there is a national performing act that may be interest you that night.
