Landmark Theatres takes over Gateway

COLUMBUS, OH — After only two years, the Drexel Gateway is changing hands.

It’s already time for a sequel at the two-year-old movie theater at South Campus Gateway.

Campus Partners announced last Tuesday that Drexel Theatres Group will no longer operate the Gateway Theater, as of March 1. Then came word Friday about the future management of the eight-screen multiplex: It will be run by the art-house chain Landmark Theatres.

I don’t expect Landmark to do any better there than the Drexel. Many of the OSU students consider the area to be too expensive, and the general community really has no good reason to go there.

The theatre is nice enough, but many find having to pay for parking to be annoying.

Biggest problem here is the AMC Lennox 24-plex that is about 2 miles away. They have abundant free parking, usually show the latest films, and have free bus service for OSU students almost straight to the door.

To get me to go there, Landmark will have to program films I just can’t see anywhere else. Given a choice, we’ll probably go to the $5.00 AM CINEMA shows at the Lennox.

AMC and Landmark usually program different kinds of films, with little overlap. Landmark’s typical bookings are similar to Drexel’s.
