The Moon Theater in Vincennes, Indiana was built around 1939 with seating for almost 500 people. By 1950 it had been re-named New Moon Theater and was operated by Alliance Theater Corp. Click the link below for a photo of the New Moon Theater.

Later renamed Showplace 3 by Kerasotes, they closed it on 30th May 2003 when they opened their new Showplace 8 complex.

Any additional information would be appreciated.

In 1963, the New Moon was operated by Alliance Amusements, a Chicago chain. Alliance also ran the Pantheon and Allison Drive-In in Vincennes.

When kerasotes took over this theatre they devided it into three theatre. Two downstairs and one in the balcony. This is now used for a church with the sanctuary in the balcony and the downstairs is used for performance space and a children’s church.
