Over the past year, the theatre has been used for theatrical productions, country music shows, and heavy metal shows, as well as private functions such as being rented out by paranormal investigation groups. The current seating capacity of the theatre is 602. Much of the theatre has been or is in the process of being restored. The theatre has held between 20-50 events per year over the past three years.

The Crump Theatre marquee was used in the promos for an upcoming BIO Channel presentation about Indiana native and singer John Mellencamp. Presumably the concert footage used in the piece was shot at the Crump as well. The interior appears to be a smaller, intimate concert setting.

The Crump Theatre had a 2-manual 3-rank Robert Morton pit organ. It is now in a private home in Shelbyville, IN.
