the cleves floor has been leveled from back to front of the building so there is a big difference in floor height about 20 feet from the front door.
I was in the cleve today! looks like the church now owns it. new “linden cleve” sign replaces the for sale sign. inside is just brick and steel beems. It still has the projection room. you walk in the front door to lots of wood paneling. nothing left from its theater days.
Featured in the TNT show Memphis Beat season2ep5.
are all the seat ends like this? i have the same end on a chair at my house made by irwin seating company.
I’ve been in this building. public access channel 21 looked at it for it’s new TV studio about 10 years ago. just a big open space. still had the projection room. front lobby was like a doctors office check-in space.
the marquee has been painted all white.
The linden was listed in the Columbus city directory in 1961:
it’s on the far left in this pic
the library opened May 14, 1952. the theater is still standing next to it. same building look at the windows.
Ron the Linden Theater, 2436 Cleveland Ave. opened in 1926.
pic of the outside. was not part of the remodel.
amazing remodel. check the website for pictures.
My great grandfather John Delfino helped paint the theater before it opened.
early 60’s photo
just a dirt lot now.
‘not moveable chairs’ on both sides. the seats in the middle came from a high school. i read that they are trying to raise money to restore the rockers that were in the drexel grandview.
the theater now has fixed seats on the right and left sides.
ron is right they are only using 6 screens right now. i would visit cinemark movies 12 for your second run needs.
ron i saw toy story 3. the print was almost unwatchable. also people from the next show came in early. worst movie experience i’ve had.
yes also no trailers a very bad print. the movie stopped twice due to projection problems.
i went today and no clean theaters and broken seats.
i was able to get some yellow bricks from the clinton last night.
i’ll post the info from that link 2 comments up in case the page goes down someday. great info.
“When it opened in 1927, The Hudson sat in the middle of a busy commercial strip between 4th and Summit. A barber shop and beauty salon flanked the entrance. A small office suite occupied the second floor. During WWII, it housed the local draft board and later a dentist’s office.
In 1970, the abandoned theater was reopened as the New Hudson and showed pornographic films. It suffered repeated vice raids and finally closed in 1972.
After The Hudson closed as a theater, it was a church for many years. Currently, the building is empty, derelict, and vandalized.parking was hurting. The theater closed in 1965.
