Star Plaza Theatre
Location: 8001 Delaware Place, Merrillville
One of Northwest Indiana’s favorite venues is the Star Plaza Theatre, a 3,400-seat theater which has played host to superstar concerts through the years. Some entertainers—such as the Oak Ridge Boys—continue to be regular favorites, and in its 38-year history such top performers as Garth Brooks, Bob Dylan, B.B. King and Aretha Franklin have wowed audiences here.
The two seating levels are in a semi-circle around the stage; the main floor level seats 2,000 and the mezzanine level seats 1,400.
Ticket holders also appreciate the free, ample parking that’s well-lit and surrounds the theater building.
A new hotel and more green space will be added in 2018.
