The Alhambra Theater

Alhambra Theatorium (also known as The Alhambra Theater) is a historic movie theater in the Haynies Corner Arts District of Evansville, Indiana. It was designed by Frank J. Schlotter and opened on September 27, 1913 as a movie theater. The Alhambra was one of many influenced by the Alhambra Palace in Spain. Although Alhambra theaters opened all over the world, only a traditional playhouse built in New York in 1905 predates Evansville’s in the United States.

The theatre cost $18,000 to build and was one of the largest movie theatres in Evansville at the time. It included a cigar shop and a confectionary, and spurred new business in the area now designated as the Haynies Corner Arts District. The theater ceased operation in 1956.

The Alhambra has been renovated a few times in the past 100 years and is in the process of being restored. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.

Alhambra

The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana will host a public forum regarding the future of the Alhambra Theatre on Monday, September 14th from 4 to 6 pm at Kirby’s Private Dining (located at 1119 Parrett Street).  The discussion will be moderated, and will be an opportunity for neighborhood stakeholders to share thoughts about the restoration and ideas for a sustainable future of the building.  Please contact the Arts Council at (812) 422-2111 with any questions specific to this event, or email andrea.adams@artswin.org.
