Star Plaza to close for good
The Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville will be torn down. Owner White Lodging has decided to demolish the theatre, along with the nearby Twin Towers, next summer to make way for a new development. The Star Plaza Theatre, which was built in 1979, was originally scheduled to close last year, along with the Radisson at Star Plaza Hotel, but the theatre was saved after an outpouring of public support. The theatre will officially close in December after a final show with the Oak Ridge Boys. The 220,000 square-foot Twin Towers office complex was built in 1972. White Lodging plans to build a new hotel on the property, which was part of the original plan last year.
