Indiana Theater

The Spanish Revival style Indiana Theater is yet another creation of Chicago architect John Eberson. It was built in 1922 with a capacity of 1600 people on the main floor and in two balconies. The corner entry opens into a 3 story open rotunda that features terrazzo floors, decorative plaster and terra cotta, mosaics, 38 hand-carved sculptures, and a fountain. With the exception of the fountain, these elements carry over into the lobby and the theater. The total project cost $750,000.

The theater currently hosts movies and live performances.
