Pictures of the theater complex can be seen here and within this slideshow.

Aksarben is Nebraska spelled backwards; the theater was built as part of the Aksarben Village, a development that is located on the site of the former Ak-sar-ben Coliseum and racetrack. Those facilities were built in the 1920’s by the Knights of Ak-Sar-ben, a civic and philanthropic organization, originally formed to “turn Nebraska around.” More about the Knights and the history of the site can be read here and here.
