It's like stepping back in time when you visit this gorgeous landmark in Elkhart. The theater is a beautiful place to see a play, watch a movie, see a concert...whatever. The venue makes it an experience. It is a blessing to a town like Elkhart. A Must See!!

Visiting from out of town for four days and happened to see an ad for Music Takes Flight with Cirque de la Symphonie. SO glad we were able to fit this into our plans as it was the highlight of the trip for both of us! Incredible show for just $20! Amazing what the performers were able to do in... More

I heard it took $16 million to renovate this classic theater, and it shows. Gorgeous multi-purpose facility with great banquet and meeting capabilities in addition to the theater. Beautiful place to walk through.

We go often to symphony concerts, silent movies with amazing theatre organ accompaniment, and other performances. It is a beautiful historic theatre with a ballroom for special events also.

With its new renovations, the Lerner has really put itself at the top for elegance and grandeur. The entire exterior and interior are intricately done with grace and perfection, and the scenery will really impress you. The theater is really lovely and hosts a variety of shows, plays, and musical numbers. We hope to see more as time goes on... More

This is a first class facility. It is very comfortable and the sound is very good. We have seen several productions and it has always been a quality experience.

My wife and I saw The Moody Blues here. The ambience of this theater is very nice. It takes you back in time. The acoustics for a live show is excellent. We would definitely come back again.

The Lerner has been exquisitely restored to its orginal glory, plus! We attended a silent movie/live organ event. It was absolutely a thrill. The organist was a master who scored the entire film from 1924. What a treat1 They'll be doing another silent movie/organ presentation in September. Don't miss it.

Ok, we booked this night out with the kids thinking it would be a nice chance to see the theater and an old fashioned film. It started with an hour and a half organ concert!! We were just about asleep by the time he broke for intermission! It was about an hour and 15 minutes too long. We would happily... More
