Historic Entertainment Palace


This is the historic Lerner Theatre in Elkhart, Indiana.  Formerly known as the Elco Theatre, it was built in 1924.  

Wikipedia says, the Lerner "is a two-story, reinforced concrete and steel, Beaux-Arts style building. The front facade features four Corinthian order columns, three freestanding urns, enriched cornice, parapet and frieze. The building is faced with terra cotta and has a lighted canopy projecting over the sidewalk. The auditorium features a large central dome measuring 30 to 40 feet in diameter. Built as a vaudeville theatre, by the late 1920s it had evolved into a motion picture palace."

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980
