Previous Names: Kramer Grand Theatre
Gustave Kramer’s Grand Theatre was built in 1902 as a replacement for the multipurpose 11 year old Opera House in Elwood. Designed by architect George H. Johnston who was assisted by up & coming architect John Eberson. The 1,100 seat theatre wowed audiences at opening on October 30, 1902. In the 1910’s, photoplays were worked into the schedule along with live events.
The Grand Theatre’s last film was “The Red Lantern” on September 25, 1919 as hours after closing the the Grand Theatre burned down and its remnants razed. As a tip of the hat, the former Superba Theatre and - then current - Colonial Theatre was quickly renamed the Baby Grand Theatre in 1918.
