Oriental Theatre closing for renovations

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Oriental Theatre on Milwaukee's east side is closing after screenings Thursday. 

The closure is only temporary. 

The theatre is undergoing renovation work as the Milwaukee Film Festival takes over the lease. The $10 million renovation project will add a full women's restroom to the first floor and upgrade sound and projection equipment. 

The theatre should re-open later in Summer 2018.
