Buskirk Chumley Theater (previously The Indiana Theater)

Bloomington, Indiana
Construction Completed: 04/1999

The historic Indiana Theater renovation/restoration is a reuse of a 1922 vaudeville movie theater, to accommodate larger musical, theater, and dance groups. The lobbies, which were historically intact, have been restored to their original character. The auditorium, balcony, and stage areas have been demolished, re-designed, and re-built to reflect the state-of-art theater standards, while still working within the limits of the existing historic building shell. Other areas, such as commercial spaces, which flank the main lobby, such as the second floor offices and the basement, have been renovated to accommodate theater support spaces, for restrooms, retail shops, and dressing rooms. New building additions at the southeast and west, accommodate mechanical and electrical rooms, storage areas, exit corridors, and basement stairs to the dressing rooms. All new architectural elements, such as the stage proscenium, balcony and lobby entrances, were designed to be compatible with the intact historic Spanish Revivalist and Art Deco architectural fabric of the lobbies and building exterior.
