These photos were taken in 1936. They show the Strand Theatre before and after the take over of ownership by Schine Theatres.
I drove past a few days ago. They had the front door open and you could see the back wall! Looks like everything is gone.
Made a visit yesterday to see the new updates. Looked the same on the outside and lobby. I talked to a guy behind the counter who said they fixed the seats, got the lights working and have digital projection in a couple rooms.
The projector is on display in what used to be the entrance to the theater. Now a board room for rent.
3 theaters in Columbus are also showing the oscars. Drexel will have a red carpet.
This vertical sign is the same as the Garden Theatre in Columbus.
10TV video about the history of the Ohio with lots of photos.
amazing how it’s still there.
movieshateyoutoo, studio 35 will be showing nite owl theatre and i read that the next episodes will not screen until May because the theater is closing for renovations. Sounds like your dream (and mine) may come true.
New screen coming next week!
Dead center near the front. I go to see movies on the big screen. If i sat in the back i might as well stay home.
From facebook “Some of us remember Cinema City from days gone by.
NO MORE dollar movies. FIRST RUN movies will be shown in the beautifully renovated theater, complete with all the latest digital, 3-D equipment and lots more surprises.
An UPSCALE movie theater with HUGE-LY DISCOUNTED ticket prices. I said, "Huge-ly discounted prices.”
With the renovation still in progress, Keep checking back for updates — we expect a grand opening very soon."
Guessing it means digital and they got rid of the bad 35mm projectors. New website CinemaCityMovies.com
now showing first run movies. website says in hd.
Opened Christmas day 1936 with the Joe E. Brown film Earth Worm Tractors.
This theater still has its proscenium arch and projection room holes.
The marquee now says newport music hall in the middle. It used to be all black. I always thought they should have something saying the name of the place on the marquee. That little newport neon sign above the doors was not cuttin' it.
I haven’t heard of any capa movies at the lincoln. no film just digital for dvd projection.
Now THAT’s a theater! cool look.
Mark capa uses the ohio theater for summer movies. they show film and digital.
Loew’s Westerville was on the end of Westerville Square. The facade is almost the same as i remember seeing films as a kid. Blue roof with big red loews letters. now fake windows replace the loews sign.
