About Buskirk-Chumley Theater

The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is a performing arts center, a downtown anchor, and an arts incubator. Built in 1922 as 'The Indiana Theatre', the BCT has been a downtown attraction and anchor since its creation. In addition to bringing nationally-known artists to our small-town stage, we strive to make our theater accessible and affordable for local artists and work to encourage new artistic endeavors and events that will enliven our community. The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is available to rent for any sort of private event, from birthday parties to corporate retreats to weddings. With seating for up to 626 in the auditorium or up to 50 on stage, this versatile space is great for gatherings large and small. The lobby, mezzanine, and dressing rooms are all available for your use.
