The Indiana Theatre was opened February 11, 1925. It was equipped with a Wurlitzer 3 manual 10 ranks theatre pipe organ and there was a 12 piece orchestra. The Indiana Theatre was redecorated in August 1935 and was renamed New Indiana Theatre. In 1945 it was remodeled to the plans of Chicago based architect Lawrence Monberg.
In the mid-1960’s it went over to screening Spanish language films and was reanamed Teatro Indiana. The Indiana Theatre was closed around 1973 after several years as a (soft core) adult theatre. The organ (still playable) was taken out and installed in the Tivoli Theatre, Downers Grove, IL. The theatre became a church and was later demolished.
