There won’t be any show business of any kind at the historic State Theater in South Bend…at least for a while anyway.

The theater in downtown South Bend has closed over financial issues, according to our reporting partners at ABC 57.

The owner of the theater has not paid three cycles worth of property taxes, according to a St. Joseph County auditor.

A sign on the door states that a group called Maya Capital “has taken over management”. The buyer of the theater is FNA Indiana LLC, according to county documents.

The theater’s owner has one year to pay back taxes and redeem the property from FNA Indiana or lose the property entirely.

All shows have been cancelled. This includes a non-profit organization’s planned Zombie Prom Saturday. Elkhart-based Wagner and the Guardian Angels will move the event to the Mishawaka FOP.
