Built in 1927 under the auspices of Carl Laemmle Jr. of Universal Pictures Corporation and its movie theater division, Universal Chain Theatrical Enterprises Inc., and designed in Spanish Mission Revival style by architect and firm Henry Ziegler Dietz, the Rivoli Theatre was a modest 1,500-seat cinema venue on Indianapolis' east side.
Universal sold out their interest in the theater in 1937, and the theater changed hands several times until 1976 when acquired by its present owner.
The Rivoli Teatre still boasts the largest theater stage in all Indianapolis. It was also host to live music concerts in the 1970’s and 1980’s, and closed down in 1992, having been dormant for ten years.
The theater has been reputed to be haunted for many years.
The present owner has plans to restore and reopen the theater and is working with local preservationists to preserve and protect it.
