Thursday, August 11, 2:00–3:00 p.m.
No Charge – Reservations Required
Presenter: Mr. John Disher, Community Outreach Manager, Indiana University Health East Central Region, IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital Foundation
Join local photographer John Disher for a view of Muncie’s historic Rivoli Theater in 1987. Mr. Disher will present his photos of the last days of the Rivoli and share his experiences touring rarely seen areas of the theater shortly before its demise. His images were shot on 35mm film and stored in a closet for nearly 25 years before being revealed in 2011 on his blog site www.rivolitheatre.wordpress.com. Many of the photos feature intricate details of the theater’s ornate construction, as well as views into spaces never seen by the theater-going public.
