Columbus’s Grandview Theater reopens

COLUMBUS, OH — It took a little longer than first thought, but the 1926 Grandview Theater is open once again. Co-owner David Nedrow says that the newly decorated theater will have the air of a theater from the flapper era. Modern amenities include improved restrooms and a new concession area. Still to come are a larger screen and digital projection.

“We will be presenting a mix of independent and foreign films and classic movies, and we’ll also have a number of special events and festivals,” co-owner David Nedrow said.

Nedrow, a former manager at the Drexel North, and his wife, Jennifer Stancel, have spent months renovating the 83-year-old cinema, 1247 Grandview Ave.

Among the changes: a new concession stand, expanded restrooms and a redecorated auditorium and lobby that Nedrow describes as “Grandview Gatsby.”

The last time I was in Columbus the theatre was still closed. Can’t wait to visit again.

I don’t understand why you added those three links to your comment.

The poster is a spammer; there have been a couple of these faux postings of late and they are apparently not being noticed by the moderators for some reason.

Ouch!! How do spammers get on here? Not good, at all, imho.

Anyway, back to a more positive note; It’s heartening to hear of yet another movie theatre re-opening, especially one that doesn’t play the same sort of schlocky movies that most other movie theatres play nowadays.

So happy to hear the Grandview is open again. Best of luck to Jennifer and David, who have given so much to bring this wonderful place back to a grateful community.

David and Jennifer have put in an incredible amount of work bringing this place back to life. I wish them the best and I hope all of their hard work pays off in making the Grandview a very successful theater.
