Columbus' Grandview to close
COLUMBUS, OH — The Drexel Grandview is closing this Saturday, September 27. Its operator cited economic difficulties in running a single-screen theater, especially with rising energy costs.The building’s owner turned down an offer to buy the building so more screens could be added. Without the extra screens, the operator had no other choice.
The Grandview had been running without a lease and losing money for some time. It programmed independent and art films exclusively. The theater opened in 1928 and was about to celebrate its 80th anniversary. Its final films are “Elegy”, “Man on Wire”, and “Tell No One”.
