Seems to be back as the Prewitt, but not a movie theatre. https://www.insideindianabusiness.com/story/43321040/plainfields-prewitt-theatre-to-see-new-life?fbclid=IwAR3ZrtaVF9kD-9Au3BXe19YaA6x32vRKA_bh4L07-oN5b5I72lTtaqtynSY

“it was the first Atmospheric style theatre in the United States. The Majestic Theatre in Houston, Texas was the second.” What about the Indiana in Terre Haute? January 28, 1922 opening, also an Eberson theater.

DavidAE commented about Rex Theater on Dec 2, 2019 at 5:10 pm

From a Terre Haute FB post today: The former Rex movie theater at the southwest corner of Sixth and Locust came down today. It was one of a few remaining structures that housed neighborhood theaters remaining. I attended scores of movies there in the 1950s. No restrooms, a Coke machine (bottles) and candy. Don Bennett operated the theater and his projectionist booth was in the east end of the building right above the entrance. One center aisle with four or five seats on each side. I don’t know if it was built as a theater, but operated for decades. In the 1960s it became a Saps Donat outlet. It has been vacant for years.

The Princess Theater transformed into an upscale bar and restaurant called Alchemy. But, it’s now closed because of a fire that caused extensive damage. It’s unclear if the restaurant will reopen. link

DavidAE commented about Peter Pan Theater on Jun 6, 2018 at 4:24 pm

From comments on the article above, “I’ve only dabbled in its history as well, but can add that Harry S. Bastian (a contractor and realtor) built at least the 2-story section in 1915-1916. The Peter Pan movie theater operated at least from 1916-1919, but was called the Superba Theater in 1920.” and “According to Gene Gladson’s book, “Indianapolis Theaters from A to Z”, the Peter Pan opened on December 24, 1915.”

Found this on the Stanford Theatre wed site: Dennis James received his education as an organ performance major at Indiana University (BMus), (MMus), and continued with post graduate studies at Ohio State University and at Arizona State University. While he was in college, Dennis helped restore an Estey pipe organ once played by Hoagy Carmichael that was formerly in the Princess Theatre in Bloomington, Indiana, and he played that organ for campus silent film screenings.
