Originally opened on 13th September 1875 as the Grand Opera House (architect Wallace Hume of Chicago). The seating capacity was given as 1,608.
In 1907, the theatre was re-built to the plans of architectural firm R.P. Daggett & Co. utilising three of the original walls of the old theatre and it re-opened on 5th September 1910 as B.F. Keith’s Theater.
The 1941 edition of Film Daily Yearbook lists the Keith’s Theater as ‘Closed’, but it is operating again in the 1943 edition. The address is given as 118 N. Pennsylvania Street, Indianapolis in these two editions, but in the 1950 edition of F.D.Y. the street number is 117.
The interior was rebuilt again in 1957 and Keith’s Theater finally closed on 30th July 1964.
