The Rosedale Theater designed by Fowler & Karges was built around 1928-29. The Rosedale Theater operated at least into the 1950’s. By 1982 it was operating as a twin screen theatre. The building is currently home to a restaurant known as "The Pub".

Google Maps is off base again. The pin icon on the map looks to be about half a mile west of the theater’s actual location. Street View is from the adjacent expressway, not from the street itself. After I updated it, I discovered that it is possible to get a view from Division Street itself, but only by moving the view eastward, then going off the expressway via an on-ramp just east of Willow Road, then doubling back along Division Street.

On February 10, 2014, the Evansville Courier & Press posted this obituary of Larry Aiken, who had renovated the Rosedale Theatre into the Theatre A. At the same time, Aiken launched The Pub in the building next door, intending it as a place where theater patrons could get a drink before or after the show, but The Pub proved so popular that it eventually displaced the theater.
