This twin theater located in Benld on North Hardroad and Park Avenue opened in 1994 in a building, as the name implies, designed to look like an old-fashioned barn.

That is very strange! I wonder if there are any theaters shaped like a lighthouse? That would be cool.

The Old Red Barn Theater is in Mt.Clare Il. There was/is a theater in Benld but hasn’t been open in many years. I lived in Benld for several years as a youngster and still visit relatives in Benld. This area was coal mining country. When the coal mines closed the local economy tanked. The area hasn’t been the same since. 2 miles from the Old Red Barn is the town of Gillespie. Gillespie is where actor Howard Keel was born and raised.
