The District Theatre

The District Theatre bridges the gap between audiences and performers, community and storytellers, magicians, and the house. In partnership with the Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF), we are committed to preserving the facilities and cultural heritage of the Massachusetts Avenue site, as well as provide the best venue for live performances in the neighborhood.
