This week, OnMilwaukee's Bobby Tanzilo takes us to a building on 26th and State St. that has been closed for more than two decades, but inside, it's anything but empty.

Trinkets from its sordid past are littered around the boarded up building, virtually untouched, representing every business that has occupied the space since it opened nearly 100 years ago.

And it has been a lot of different things over the years.  

In its history it evolved from a neighborhood theater, to a prudish dance club, to a rock club, to another rock club, and finally, to a strip club.
