  Groundbreaking: IU Cinema - University Theater
October 8, 2009

Indiana University officials have broken ground on a project that will renovate the University Theater and convert it to a state-of-the-art cinema facility, while also adding classroom, rehearsal and performance space for the Department of Theatre and Drama.

The renovation will create a 300-seat IU Cinema, which will accommodate film studies courses, campus film festivals and series, student-directed works, and visits by well-known filmmakers and scholars. It also will add a small studio theater, a movement studio and other amenities for the Department of Theatre and Drama, in addition to a large loading area for the stage of the IU Auditorium.

The project will connect the IU Auditorium with the Lee Norvelle Theatre and Drama Center and the adjacent Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center. Construction is expected to be completed by fall 2010.
