Loew's Victory at night

Viewing: Photo | Street View

The 2,500-seat Victory Theatre was opened in July 1921, presenting vaudeville. It was taken over by Loew’s Inc. in 1926, becoming Loew’s Victory Theatre. It operated as a movie theatre until closing in 1971.

It had a short life as a teenage disco/nightclub in the late-1970’s, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. The Victory Theatre was closed in 1992, and was reopened in 1999 following an extensive renovation into a performing arts center.

Thanks for the info Chuck1231, the next time I go to Evansville I will check it out. I have been there several times but did not know about this theatre. Good to see that it is still in operation.

Does anyone remember a Carlton Theater on Main Street in Evansville? It was there in the mid-fifties. Don’t see any of the theaters listed in Evansville on Cinema Treasures refer to that name.

I saw “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” at this theatre while on a multi state trip. When I finally got back to New York, “Molly Brown” was first opening at the Music Hall. I couldn’t believe they built such a spectacular theatre, in what I looked at as a “little town”. In any event, I’m glad that it’s still there and hasn’t been demolished….like virtually all the great theatres in New York have been.
