Information for this tour was contributed by Mandy Waters.

This theatre was used as a porn theatre for much of the 1980s. It was shut down and has been vacant for 20+ years. A group called The Reclamation Project has since purchased the theatre and is now restoring it from all the water damage to use as a cultural center for the hundreds of refugees that have been relocated to Fort Wayne, IN.
