photo taken today of the clinton with the front torn down.
the clintons going but good news the cleve is coming back.
signs posted out front read “future site of the linden cleve theater”. also includes a picture of what it will look like.
from the pics in the blog it’s clear the floor has not been leveled as said in the first comment on this page.
Former Studio 35 owner, Frank Marzetti passed away last Sunday. Frank owned the theater with his wife and gave the cinema its current name and had the groundbreaking idea of serving beer at the movies, making Studio 35 the first theater in the United States to serve alcohol.
sunday the hallway was lit. also they don’t mask the side of the screens. so it has fuzzy edges.
studio 35 in columbus made a dvd. turned out great. they had a interview with a woman that was at opening day. you might find one.
at the re-opening they showed a history of the theater digital video on a movie screen. better than nothing.
lots of info about the history of the clinton.
great photos of the clinton
the cleve is now in contract by the pastor of the church next door. they want to make it a theater again. just a shell inside.
the blu-ray will have footage of eric stoltz as marty.
you can still see the outline of the old sign on the building. no pre-show just music and dark rooms. can’t see to sit down.
a car hit the clinton last night.
looks like its reopening this summer. brice outlet is now called Marketplace of the Americas. they are looking for vendors to open booths at the mall.

nice pic of the theater at the bottom of the page.
“Unfortunately everything stated about the condition is true, and there’s an asbestos issue as well. Plus, I guess zoning codes would require a certain amount of parking for the theater that would require building a parking garage, since there isn’t enough surface parking around. Our estimates were in the $5 million range.”
here are some post from another board about the clinton.
“ About two years ago a friend of mine, my wife and I went and looked at the property. At the time Ohio Equities was selling the property for 1.4 million
dollars which included the theater, the Clintonville Electric building, the parking lot next to the Clintonville Electric building and weirdly a single family house behind the Clintonville electric building on Brighton. To be exact the property is 186 feet of frontage on High St with a total of 26K sq. feet. There is one hitch in that I believe there is one store in that Clintoville Electric building that is owned by someone else and was not for sale at the time.
When we walked through the theater it was already not in very good shape. The theater had a leaky roof that was allowing water to pool up in the projector room. The theater had been used most recently as a warehouse for Clintonville Electric. As I remember the floor of the theater (where the seats would have been) had been leveled with concrete and the walls and interior in general felt like someone had stripped the place of anything interesting.
i also read that the facade has been saved and cannot be torn down.
asking price for this property…….about 1 million dollars. you get the theater, clintonville electric and a house.
Jeff Frank owner of the Drexel has some memories to share in this weeks e-mail newsletter.
The Sci-Fi Marathon, now in its 27th year, is the closest thing to my memories of Saturday matineeâ€™s at the Esquire Theatre on East Broad St. in the late 50â€™s. We lived minutes away and collect pop bottles on the way to the cinema, cashing them in for 2 cents each to pay for admission and snacks. I remember getting a choice of cubes or crushed ice in your drink (the Esquire had a pop machine in the lobby). . On Saturday matinees youâ€™d come early and stay all day to view at least three feature films, (sometimes five!), cartoons and combinations of such film serial favorites as Superman, the Blackhawks, Flash Gordon and many many more â€" all for 50 cents. Youâ€™d see three Japanese monster films (Gozilla was always the headliner) or a horror triple-bill of The Mummy, Frankenstein and The Wolfman, and the theatre was always filled with young thrill-seekers ready to have their hair stand on end.
the back of the theater has a big industrial garage door. i think it was a auto body shop.
the cleve is for sale.
