Columbus area couple take up challenge of running a single screener
COLUMBUS, OH — The oldest theater in Franklin County, Ohio will be reopening in stages soon. Formerly the Drexel Grandview in Columbus, Ohio, now to be simply the Grandview, co-owners Jennifer Stancel and her husband David Nedrow will be seeking to show films films that typically do not play in towns such as Columbus. The theater will feature actual 35mm projection.
Regular programming — a mix of “classic, international and independent films,” according to Nedrow — is set to begin Nov. 6.
The theater will be “75 percent” finished when the 1920s movie house opens to the public Friday. Nedrow and Stancel are billing the weekend as a “last chance, first chance” event — the last chance to see some original decorations uncovered by construction and the first chance to see changes that have already been made, including new bathrooms and a rebuilt concession stand.
