223 North Broadway, Urbana, Illinois 61801
Opened 1 March 1967
The abandoned Big Four Depot was put to a new theatrical use when a group of University instructors, graduate students, and others formed a company to be a home to many campus and local performing groups. They called the venue "The Depot." The first production was Samuel Beckett's "Endgame" that opened on 1 March 1967.
A different group has been running the venue for many, many years. It is now called "The Station Theatre."
