The following two stories detailing two of the three resident ghosts have been published in guidebooks to the haunted US & Canada and detail the authors personal encounter with them: The Little Girl and The Man in the Projection Booth.
On top of its haunted history, the Mounds Theatre has a historic one as well. In its lifetime it has functioned as a silent movie theatre & vaudeville stage, a warehouse and a childrens arts venue. Below are the mundane history details to introduce you to this unique building.
We will run two "Sunset Tours" which give an opportunity for kids 8-15 to take the tour (accompanied by an adult) before sundown so it's a little less intimidating for younger participants.

Real Paranormal Activity
I've been there a few times. On different tours I've experienced lights turning on, odd smells, the sound of people walking across the stage, and numerous cold spots. The 3 hour tour is a must for any ghost hunter just to experience the basement. The place has a well documented history of paranormal activity. The theatre itself is a non-profit so your ticket is a donation to keep the place running and provide theatre to the neighborhood.
