ELWOOD (LYRIC, MACK, CLASSIC) Theatre; Elwood, Indiana.

Elwood’s Lyric Theatre of 1909 was renamed the Johnny Mack Theatre about 1925 and later the Classic Theatre until its final incarnation as the Elwood Theatre. It outlived the city’s many other indoor theatres until its final closure in the fall of 1981. During its tenure as the Mack Theatre, a piano, violin and cello trio provided film accompaniment.

Demolished long ago, now a parking lot.

What a waste to tear down a lovely brick building like this. Nice detail work.

Looks like a downtown full of parking lots. Lovely.

Elwood looked pretty ratty. They’ve lost a lot of population, and about half of downtown is gone. In the old picture above, everything is gone except the building just past the highway sign, which has been mutilated with a horrible fake stucco front.
