Cadick Picture
Scanned from an ad in the Evansville Press
This 3500 seat theater would have been the largest of all local theaters. The Loew's Victory seated 2500. The Cadick was to be constructed by the Vendome Theatre Company. The picture below is of the Ambassador theater and office building that would have taken the place of the Cadick theater. Financial difficulties ended the Cadick effort and the Great Depression stopped the Ambassador.The picture above is from an ad in the Evansville Press Exposition from 1920 (no month or day). It announces the Cadick Theater "now under construction." Click to see the full ad.
