Grandview Theatre to re-opening update
COLUMBUS, OH — The theatre formerly known as the Drexel Grandview will live again. Originally opened in 1926, the Grandview Theatre operated until the middle of the century before it closed. After several brief runs under different operators, Jeff and Kathy Frank began operating it in the early ‘90s as the Drexel Grandview. After 17 years, the Drexel Grandview closed on Sept. 30, 2008.
The theatre will open under its original name, Grandview Theatre, and will be operated by Columbus Independent Media, Inc., helmed by David Nedrow and Jennifer Stancel. The new operators are planning many renovations to the theatre, including new auditorium soft goods, a new concession stand, and booth improvements. The theatre is expected to begin regular programming in early 2009, maintaining the independent and foreign film focus of the Drexel Grandview.
