Pantheon History Marker Planned for Downtown Vincennes

The newly-repurposed Pantheon Theater will have a marker installed to remember the former downtown Vincennes theater’s former life.  The building at Fifth and Main is being re-made as a business incubator for start-ups and small businesses.

         Anne Pratt is with the Red Skelton Museum of American Comedy. She says the new monument will remember Skelton and other famous entertainers who performed in that building…

          Pratt says the marker’s dedication is planned for the spring of 2021…

           The Vincennes native Skelton owed his big break to comedian Ed Wynn.  Wynn was performing at the Pantheon when he discovered Skelton.
