The Forest Theater in Carmel is the soul of the community, but in 1971 it as nearly torn down. The village's mayor and city council wanted to replace it with a parking lot. Civic activists rose up in outrage, and, in 1972, won their battle to save the wonderful site. The theater continues to thrive today.
