A photo of the lobby of the Grand Theatre in Terre Haute appears on this page of the May 4, 1935, issue of Motion Picture Herald. The lobby had recently been redesigned in a modern style featuring Carrera Glass, Pittsburgh Glass Company’s competitor to the better-known Vitrolite brand of glass tiles.

The theater on Wabash Ave. was renamed the Grand after the Opera House was torn down. I was in the Wabash Ave. Grand in the 70’s when I was at ISU. The manager told me that there was a tunnel from the front basement across Wabash to the theater building on the north side of the street. He said that actors would appear on multiple stages using different names at the same time to increase income. According to him many of the theaters around 7th and Wabash were connected underground.

unless there was two Grand Theatres in Terre Haute, the address shown for this Grand Theare is incorrect. I grew up watching movies at the Grand Theatre on Wabash Avenue. I was born the last part of 1950.
