This iconic Terre Haute landmark opened on January 28, 1922, and occupies a special place in American theatre architecture design. The Theatre was built by Terre Haute resident T.W. Barhydt to be a lasting gift to the city of Terre Haute and it was designed by America’s preeminent designer John Eberson to be his first prototype “Atmospheric Theatre” which became his signature style that is recognized to be the gold standard of American theatre design. Throughout its rich history, the Theatre has hosted a wide range of events that have included vaudeville, cinema, performing arts and community celebrations of all types. Through restoration efforts which began in May 2013, the Indiana Theatre’s heritage has been preserved and the Indiana has been reborn as a 1,600 seat full service event center which can host a wide range of community gatherings that include live entertainment, performing arts, cinema, wedding events, and fundraisers. While visiting our proud and historic city, we encourage you to visit this downtown treasure which has served as a vault for Terre Haute memories since 1922.

We enjoyed a tour that gave us a greater appreciation for the Indiana Theatre’s history and significance. Apparently it’s architect, John Eberson, first introduced the “atmospheric” style there, and it became the movie palace design which was popular in the late 1920s. Sixteen of his...More

We were in town looking for some public sculptures and we saw the Indiana Theater. The outside is a show stopper. It was closed so I didn't have a chance to tour it but it must of been something special.

A restored movie palace that is made available for community and private events. Step back through time into the 1920's as you enter this grand building.

We attended a wedding in the evening at the theater and was very disappointed that there was no air conditioning. Evidently it had broken down days before and the management never even thought to contact the wedding party and discuss options. We understand things like...More
