This theater is an Art Deco gem just off the town square in Bloomington, IN. Nicely preserved thanks to dedicated volunteers, it offers an eclectic mix of shows.

If you have been to any Performance Theater this one will not knock your socks off. Yes, it is intimate, has a few shows a year, but it seems to be vacant most of the time sitting idle screaming USE ME! Its a former movie theater so the site lines are great.

I like when they save these theaters and find uses for them. A variety of events are brought here. Check to see what is going on while you are in Bloomington. Just off the square and walking distance to many eateries. Parking can be an issue as it is in most places downtown Bloomington.

Went and saw "To Kill A Mockingbird" - seats were nice and comfy - I think any location would be a good seat - sound was very good = there was upstairs seating as well - we went up and looked during intermission and it had good views of the stage as well. Very nice!
