The Lincoln Square opened in 1908 as the Family Theatre, was later named the Rialto and in 1923 became the Lincoln Square.
The first known charge of showing an obscene film in Indianapolis was while the theatre was known as the Rialto. As President of the Indianapolis Church Federation a Mr. M.C. Pearson saw the film and demanded the court to take action. A Jury reviewd the movie on Oct 2, and deamed the film not obscene. The film then played for two weeks following the decision.
The theatre had two entrances, one being on Kentucky Avenue and the other on South Illinois. The Family used both entrances but the Rialto and the Lincoln Square used the entrance on Kentucky Avenue. As the Kentucky Theatre it was one of the leading vaudeville theatres during its prime.
Could not find a time line as to when the theatre was closed or demolished.
