The Rivoli Theatre was built in 1927 under the watchful eye of Carl Laemmle Jr., President of Universal Pictures Corporation and its movie theatre division.

The Inaugural Program proclaimed the Rivoli would be a "new home of happiness for the entire family."
The theatre was designed by architect Henry Ziegler Dietz in Spanish Mission Revival style, including iron brackets, small second floor faux balconies and the pent roof of red clay tile.

Pogue's Run is a corridor that Native Americans and wildlife followed long before the arrival of pioneer settlers. One of those pioneers was a blacksmith named George Pogue in 1819 who settled on a hill overlooking the stream, some small distance from its confluence with the White River. The waterway begins near Arlington Avenue and East 34th Street and flows southwest to the I-65/I-70 overpass near Michigan Street and then underground downtown to the White River. Today, the lower portions of Pogues Run flow through concrete aqueducts beneath downtown Indianapolis but the upper run is a prime candidate for greenway development and is a vital link in the Indy Parks Greenways vision.
