Join the Riverside Iowa Paranormal team as we investigate the Elkhart Civic Theatre aka Bristol Opera House where many investigators believe the stage is a portal.

The building was built by Mr. Horace H. Mosier in 1894, with a second building, which is the actual theatre, built up against it in 1897.

The Theatre opened in 1897 with a production of U.S.S. Pinafore by the Arion Company.

The Bristol Opera House was originally named the Mosier Opera House, and the construction of the building was somewhat rough, leading to some complications with the stage portion, etc. The theatre was built to accommodate anticipated inter-urban rail traffic. Mosier thought the town of Bristol would flourish, but the rail system failed, and Bristol remained a small town ultimately.

Over the years the Bristol Opera House tried to keep up with the needs of the community. The theatre hosted a traveling production of a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta and served as a music hall, cinema and even a skating rink prior to 1940. In 1940 it was deemed unsafe for anything other than storage and closed for 20 years.

In 1960 the Elkhart Civic Theatre, Inc. purchased the building. The building has had many changes and alterations over the years it has been a theatre, but retains much of its original exterior look, as well as the original stage proscenium.

Join us on an investigation at this historic location. There will be plenty of free roam time where you can investigate on your own or with one of our team members using our equipment.
