Quimby Village Theater

Filed under: Forgotten Indiana — Christopher Crawford @ 11:47 pm

This old theater at the Quimby Village Shopping center on Blufton Road in Fort Wayne was a place from my childhood. My parents took my sister and I there often to see movies, since it was the closest theater to our home back then. The theater has been closed for a very long time now, probably 15 years, though it housed a church for a while. It now sits empty.

The Quimby Village Theater on Blufton Road in Fort Wayne, Indiana sits abandoned. The sign has been removed from the marque, and the parking lot pavement is cracked and full of potholes.

See the rest of my photographs of Indiana’s forgotten places.


  1. The first movie I ever saw here was Fantasia. I wonder if anyone will ever open the place up again or if it will go by the wayside like Holiday 1 & 2 did?

  2. I remember going to movies as a teenager at that theatre when it was brand new, in the late fifties. It opened as the Clyde, named by owner Helen Quimby for her late husband, Clyde Quimby. It was a large and extravagantly-done single-screen theatre.
