The “Theater Changes” section of The Film Daily of October 4, 1937, listed the Morin Theatre at Brookville, Indiana, as a new house.

Good news. I was at the Brookville Theatre on Saturday night (2/15/14) to see “Ride Along” and was told the theater will be divided into two auditoriums and digital projectors will be installed later this year.

Note: the theatre’s website is dead. It is showing a movie 2.5 years .

It is is good they are going digital. But to cut the theatre in half and invest in 2 digital projectors. Instead of keeping the theater as it is and only getting one projector. Would they really generate enough revenue with 2 screens? I am not sure it is worth the $$$ for the renovation and projector etc. Keep her a single screen!

The actual opening date is September 3, 1937 with the Marx Brothers in “A Day At The Races”, originally listed as a Saturday Matinee but it apparently listed as a Friday Matinee as well since it made its grand opening on a Friday.

The theatre name is named after Howard Morin who was the main opponent to the theatre. He closed the nearby American Theatre later that February 1938 which the American Theatre is part of the city’s Town Hall.
