The Andalus Theatre opened March 22, 1931 and closed in 1958. It was used as a church until it was torn down in 1999 to make way for a new library. In 2009, the site is still an empty lot.

indyta1989 The Newman Manufacturing Co. made the 25 bronze doors which were installed at our 1927 4$ million dollar Albee Th. on East Fifth St. Some of those doors today reside at another Thomas Lamb designed theater, which is the Ohio Th. in Columbus,Oh.

Word has arrived that St. Bernard will be getting a new library on the now empty site which formerly held the Andalus Theatre.

I have this exact same ticket eater. I was unsure of what it was and just happened to search it on Google as I was curious to see what it actually was used for.

I figured it had to do with movies or events as there were still small bits of tickets in it when I first picked it up.
