The Five Flags Theater has a rich history entwined with Dubuque and the Tri-State Area. The building at 4th and Main was reconstructed as the Majestic Theater in 1910 after a fire destroyed the original structure. In the late 1960's, the theater was slated for demolition, but dodged the wrecking ball with the help of a group of dedicated Dubuque citizens who rallied to save the theater. Their action marked the beginning of the Dubuque Five Flags Center, a city block dedicated to enhancing the cultural experience of Dubuque.
The Five Flags Theater has undergone substantial restoration with new restrooms, a roomier balcony, restored seats, plaster repair and a complete repainting to the original colors. Special care was taken to preserve the historic Five Flags Theater with the expertise of the area's premier restoration professionals.
Five Flags Theater occupies a historic site which has been a landmark for public entertainment since 1840.
