The Carmel Theatre opened on Sep. 15, 1949 and was owned and operated by Dr. Harry G. Jones. The Carmel seated 600. The theatre opened with a big hullabaloo offering soft drinks on the house, flowers for the women, gifts and candies for the children. The big gimmick was sacks of “carmel” from Carmel. I could not find a time line on when the Carmel closed but was able to find that it was demolished.

I found this on a history of Carmel, Indiana website:

“In 1949, the Carmel Theatre opened. Ticket prices were 40 cents for adults and 20 cents for children. Candy bars were sold for a nickel each. The theatre was closed and razed by the City in 1984. In 1985, the "Downtown Park” was dedicated on the original site of the Carmel Theatre".

There is additional information here. It looks like the theater was razed in 1984, or around that time:

Which of course is what LM said immediately above. My mistake.

This is supposed to be a 1985 photo of the Carmel:
