Originally built in 1921 as the Palace Theater and now listed on the National Register for Historic Places, this magnificent landmark theater has thrilled us, scared us, soothed us, rallied us, entertained us, and moved us to tears of sorrow and joy. The Morris draws patrons from the surrounding areas of Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan and is the only venue of its caliber between Chicago, Detroit, and Indianapolis.
