Our Story

Vermillion Theaters launched on July 1, 2015, when the Vermillion Cultural Association purchased the Coyote Twin Theater and historic Vermillion Theater to preserve them from abandonment and demolition. Since then, we have—with the help of some key partners—invested over $300,000 to renovate and refresh both auditoriums; purchased state of the art sound, projection, and lighting for the theaters; and built a cinema culture that Vermillion and the greater community can be proud of.

The Vermillion Cultural Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the inclusion of art in everyday life. We independently own and operate the Coyote Twin because we believe in the necessity and power and fun of movies. It's a labor of love as much as it is our mission.

Our Vision

Future projects for the VCA include renovation of our lobby, including the bathrooms and concession stand at the Coyote Twin as well as revitalization of the Vermillion Theater as a dynamic multipurpose space to host live music and performance events, movies, receptions, and more. We have big dreams for our spaces and ask for your patience and support as we work toward realizing them!

While streaming and rental services offer film lovers a wide variety of entertainment to enjoy in the privacy of their homes, watching a film on the big screen is a rich and irreplaceable experience. For one thing, we have better popcorn! 

Movies make a great excuse for a date night or a get-together with friends, and can also be a friendly, imaginative source of family entertainment. Paired with dinner out, candy or popcorn from concessions, or drinks at a local bar later, going out on the town to see a movie gives us all a chance to transform film watching into a community-enhancing experience.

We'll see you at the movies!


We're located in downtown Vermillion, where plenty of great dining options are within walking distance.
