H.E. Hart was the owner of the Court in the late 1940s.

I have whats left of the Court Theater. The seats which I have made into a home theater and a tribute to the Court Theater of Auburn Indiana. The seats were used in a non denominational church untill 1992 when I bought them from the preacher. I have been looking everywhere without luck to find a photo of the lobby, the snack bar, and the balcony of the Court. If anyone knows of a photo of these I would love to see them.
