Originally opened in 1905, the Eagles Theatre was built as a vaudeville theater, but switched to movies by the 1930’s when it was redecorated in the Art Deco style.

The Eagles Theatre boasts one of the largest screens remaining in Indiana, has two balconies and a ballroom.

The Eagles Theatre was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.

i went to a movie at the eagles in the late 90’s, while i was attending college in a nearby town.

it’s a great little movie theatre that has somehow survived despite cineplexes in neighboring areas. it makes me happy to see that it is still in business.
