There was also a Crest Theatre on Market Street, in addition to the Eagles and the Colonial. But I haven’t been able to find any other information on it, other than a 1955 photo on the Wabash Memories Facebook page. If anyone can find an address or build date, I’ll set up a CT page for it.

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.

Here is a link to an interesting article about this theater and a few others in Indiana:

I was recently given a guided tour of the Eagles. we were shown the second and third balconies, the projection room, and even the top-floor ballroom. Amazing design and architecture make the Eagles a beautiful treasure that should never be allowed to slip away.
