Hunt’s Cinestage was originally known as THE HIGH ST.THEATRE, THE LYCEUM and then THE UPTOWN. It was not a large house (around 500),but hosted “road shows” like Around the World in 80 Days, Spartacus, Sweet Charity, etc. I remember the interior had a lot of blue. It was located next door to the Chittedan Hotel.

The Hunt family operated this theatre and the Hunt’s McCook in Dayton, Ohio. When the elder Hunt passed away, his wife ran the Cinestage and his daughter and son in law ran the McCook. The Cinestage was closed in 1972 upon the retirement of Mrs. Hunt.
