This theatre was opened on May 6, 1928 as a vaudeville and movie house seating 1,800. By the late-1950’s, the Fountain Square Theatre was closed and then gutted.
The theatre was converted first into a Woolworth’s store then a thrift shop before its restoration and is now used for banquets and swing dancing.
“My father often went there when he was growing up in the late-1930’s to 1940 when he joined the Army and became a soldier in World War II. He returned there in the late-1940’s, and there was a popular soda-pop malt shop built next door to the theatre in the same building. He said he had a lot of fond memories there, including seeing the Hoosier Hot Shots Band perform live onstage there in 1939.”
