The Alhambra building was built in 1913 on the site of the former Casino Theatre. This was the first theatre built in Indianapolis for movies only. It was the first movie house in the city to built with a balcony. It was built by the Dickson-Talbot chain. The facade of the theatre was Rockwood Pottery, with the interior painted in ebony and gold.
There were two organs used in the Alhambra, the first being a A.M.P. Moller and the second was a Smith-Geneva. After the theatre closed in 1921, the Smith Geneva organ was moved to the Cadle Tabernacle. The Alhambra Theatre was demolished in 1990.
