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.

I attended several events in the theater, both before and after renovations. I can remember seeing my very first real HUGE screen movie in this Venue " Black Beauty". I attended many other functions. I recently have attended a great wedding ceremony and reception, and it was a great experience. However the most memorable was late Christmas season when The... More

This was a delightful experience. We attended a Dinner and a Show offering. The dinner was catered by Louise's and was buffet style. It was good but not outstanding. We then watched one of our favorite musicals "The Sound of Music" on the big screen. It was a delight. It was exciting to see that has been done to refurbish... More

Attended a breast Cancer Wine Tasting fund raiser, while in town. The old theatre is beautiful and has very old ornate designs throughout the theatre.

Step back in time and experience the beauty of an old time showplace. The detail in this building is amazing. Thankfully, this historical landmark was not allowed to fall into complete disrepair and was brought back to it's glory by the current owners. Definitely make an effort to visit, call ahead if you'd like a tour.

We attended a wonderful buffet dinner/movie showing tonight and loved it. We are from Canada and just in Terre Haute for three nights. We had walked by this theatre which was just a short walk from our hotel. It intrigued us as even the outside drew us to it. The theatre has an immaculately restored marquee that inspires you to...

Gorgeous old theater that has been restored. I was here for a business gathering. Theater must be 100 years old or so. A great venue.

I attended events and movies at the Indiana Theatre from 5yrs of age until about 20yrs! It was a grand ole place with 2 or 3 balconies and several private side boxes on each side!

My earliest memories as a child was going to the Indiana Theatre with my parents. The architecture was so fascinating even for me. Fountains! Detail! The Large Entrance! Looking Up! And then the special balcony. My parents wouldn't let me sit there, but I could dream. I don't remember one movie I saw there, but I remember the theatre. I... More

We just spent an evening of great fun watching Gone with the Wind to celebrate its 75th anniversary year on the big screen of The Indiana! It was a spectacular evening with great food, a full bar and a house full of people who have never seen this American Film Institute Top 100 movie at the theater. Owner Rob Lundstrom's... More
