Ashland Theatre is an aka for Ingram’s Theatre. A biography of E. A. Ingram says that he entered the theater business in Ashland when he was 19, which would have been 1920 or 1921, and that “[t]he theater was named ‘Ingram’s’ in the early years and later became the Ashland Theater.”

On August 18, 1914 the Town of Ashland deeded a property which had been an alleyway for development. This was the site of the Ashland Theatre. The theatre was expanded in 1943 reopening as the New Ashland Theatre. The building was sold in 1968, perhaps when it closed.

In 2005 the Steele family purchased the building and after renovations reopened it as a perform art center the following year. No clue what happened prior to the purchase by the Steels.

The address is 98 Court Square.
