Millions To Be Spent To Restore Spencer Theater

Last updated on Thursday, April 5, 2012

(SPENCER) - Spencer’s dilapidated 1920s movie theater could soon get a multimillion restoration.

Bloomington-based medical device maker Cook Group announced it would restore the 750-seat Tivoli Theatre in downtown Spencer, which was boarded up in 1999 four years after it was ravaged by fire.

Company spokesman David McCarty says it wasn't clear how much renovating the theater that opened in 1928 would cost.

The building was saved from demolition in 2005 when it was bought by a local preservation group.

The project will be overseen by the same construction manager who oversaw the Cook-led restoration of the French Lick Springs Resort and the West Baden Springs Hotel.
