Elkhart’s Historic Lerner Theatre

Elkhart's historic Lerner TheatreCatching some good entertainment is a great way to pass the time as we wait for warmer weather. Elkhart’s historic Lerner Theatre has plenty of that on tap throughout 2015 and beyond!

The Lerner Theatre has been on the corner of Franklin and Main Streets in downtown Elkhart, Indiana since November 24, 1924. Of course, it has seen lots of ups and downs since the grand opening – vaudeville, big band, the innovation of movies.

The Lerner Theatre’s had its share of name changes, too. It was “The Warner” for a short period in the 1930’s, then it was “The ELCO Theatre” – a name it kept the longest, from 1934 to 2008. Then, in 2011, it was back to “The Lerner Theatre” as an extended, multimillion dollar, restoration project finally drew to a close and the theatre re-opened: renewed and ready to go – they even refurbished the 1924 Kimball pipe organ – one of only three still in their original locations!

Since its reopening, the Lerner Theatre has hosted all manner of entertainment, both live and filmed, dramatic and musical: a classic theater reborn as a state of the art performance and event facility.
