About The Athenaeum Theatre
One of Indy’s most revered architectural wonders and cultural destinations, The Athenaeum is home to a number of performance and exhibition spaces, from the Biergarten outside to various niches and stages inside. The premier space, however, where American Cabaret Theatre held fort for many years, is a vast and impressive auditorium, somehow both grand and intimate at the same time. It is now a host to various theater performances, along with musical acts and other festivities. Now that the Athenaeum’s Coat Check Coffee has become just about the only coffeehouse downtown—aside from Starbucks—to get your caffeine fix due to recent closures, you have no excuse not to check out the art in Athenaeum Art Space just upstairs from the espresso machines. You may have seen the street-art-inspired paintings of Gary Gee depicted on billboards as part of the Arts Council of Indianapolis’ High Art Program. But if you’ve been a regular patron at the Art Space, you would’ve seen his work there first.
