The historic Astra Theatre first opened in 1936 and operated as a family-owned movie theater for the next 66 years.

After fundraising efforts that included a $400,000 historic preservation grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs, the Astra went through a complete renovation from May 2017 to April 2018.  The renovation, totaling nearly $1.7 million, replaced all major infrastructure while also allowing for the installation of a new accessible restroom on the first floor, an expanded stage, new seating throughout, re-opening the balcony, new sound and lights, a new men’s restroom, a renovated women’s restroom, a new concessions area, new doors, a refurbished marquee, new doors, refurbished windows, and on and on.  Essentially, the Astra is a new 82-year-old facility.
