About Hilbert Circle Theatre

When it opened on Aug. 30, 1916, Hilbert Circle Theatre was the first Indianapolis and Midwest structure erected expressly for the presentation of feature-length motion pictures. It’s now not only home to the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, but also presents films, lectures and other performances. The upper level Oval Promenade displays various works by Indiana artists chosen through a juried competition. This monthly schedule is augmented by the annual display of winners form the Symphony-in-Color statewide school program. The Hilbert Circle Theatre can also be reserved for your public/private functions. Hungry? A three-course buffet is available in the Wood Room.
