The Indiana Theatre- Terre Haute, IN

It's no secret that we love old movies and we love old movie theatres. The Indiana Theatre in Terre Haute is especially close to Mr. WYA's heart because he spent many a childhood afternoon there. Built in 1922, we are so grateful that it is still standing and looking so good. Isn't the facade impressive at the corner of Ohio St. and 6th? When you walk in you are in the "rotunda" with a soaring ceiling (3rd picture from top) and the Spanish Baroque style envelops you. Walk through another set of doors and you are in the gorgeous lobby with 38 hand carved sculptures on the ceiling. It is an absolute stunner. The style continues in the auditorium, which can accommodate movies and live shows, too. The Indiana is an absolute jewel that you really should go see. Thanks to everyone involved in keeping this theatre going and thanks for letting us come through before showtime and snap these pictures.

Thank you for your kind comments about our theatre. We welcome anyone to come and enjoy this timeless treasure, and to come and enjoy a show, you can't beat our ticket and concession prices.
