2. History Of The Theatre.
Completely restored in 2015, the historic Mitchell Opera House enjoys a rich tradition of community events, film screenings and live music entertainment. Recalling the days when the Monon Line connected with the B&O Railroad, the Opera House now serves as a permanent hub for the arts in Southern Indiana. With a stage once graced by Broadway’s biggest stars, leading films and their producers, and even the President of the United States, the Mitchell Opera House invites you back to a simpler time.(Submitted on April 10, 2022, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
