The Silver Screen Cinema was one of the last few remaining single screen theaters in Indiana. It was built around 1939. It was operated like an old fashioned theater. According to the owner Bruce Babbitt, “we don’t take credit or debit cards, and we don’t sell tickets on the Internet. It’s still the old-fashioned first-come-first-serve. We keep it simple. One of the ways we remain competitive is not getting involved in credit card machines”. The Silver Screen Cinema shows first run movies. Prices are $4.50 for adults, $3.50 for children 11 and under, matinees all seats $3.00".

The Silver Screen Cinema was closed in the summer of 2012.

This is a small town theatre. I have fond memories of it. It was once called the Gala Theatre. I do not know if that was the original name though. I hope to take my kids there to see an old time movie theatre next time I visit my hometown.

Best wishes
