The Historic Artcraft Theatre operated as a first-run movie theater continuously for 78 years before closing. Saved from demolition by historic preservation group Franklin Heritage Inc., the theater shows classic movies and hosts concerts as the group restores the Artcraft and other local buildings. The Artcraft is one of the best examples of an art deco theatre in Indiana.
