Varieties Theatre, 729 Wabash Avenue, Terre Haute, IN 47807

Moving Picture World, November 16, 1912:


“We print herewith a half-tone of the Varieities Theater of Terre Haute, Ind., which plays vaudeville and pictures from September to June. For years past the house was dark during the summer months, but this year the manager kept moving pictures running from June to September with much success.

“A large number of the feature films now on the market were run and mostly all the Bison and other independent features were booked two and three days.

‘”The extra expenditure for the features,’ said the manager of the Varieties, ‘was offset by the increase in the box office receipts.'”

Produced by Film d’art as  La Dame Aux Camelias, the film received American  distribution, February 24, 1912,  under the title Camille
