This theater in downtown Muncie has long been been a cultural mainstay throughout a series of economic booms and busts. It originally opened in 1904 as the Star Theatre, a vaudeville house.

It was renamed the Hoosier Theatre in 1933, remaining in operation as a movie house until its closure in 1954. During the 40s and 50s, the Hoosier was part of the Y & W chain. It reopened in 1961 as the Muncie Civic Theatre.

The Civic Theatre is still a popular venue for local actors and community productions.
