The Main Theatre was opened June 3, 1931 with seating listed at 489. It was located across the street and down the block from the much larger Lafayette Theatre. The Main Theatre was owned and operated by Indianapolis Co-Op Theatres.

The Main Theatre closed in 1956 and has since been demolished. There is a parking lot where the theatre once stood.

The Maim Theatre was located between the General Telephone building and the Sherwin-Williams paint store. the paint store burned in the 1960’s destroying the Main Theatre. An addition to the General Telephone ( now known as Frontier Communications) building was erected where the theatre stood.
