I have a picture of my grandfather on an elephant in front of the theater for the opening of “Around the World in Eighty Days”.
Wish I could do this with the Valley. And Hank, I would love to hear any stories you have about my Grandfather. I’m sorry this is kind of a re-post, but I think I have misplaced your contact info. You can email me with any memories you have of Louis Wiethe Sr, Ed Wiethe, or Lou Jr at
Did Lou Jr work at the theater? I taped my grandfather telling some of his life, but he got too emotional and didn’t want to go on. Can I ask you about him sometime? Are you in Cincinnati?
I would love to have more information on the history or any memories people may have of this or my grandfather’s other theaters! Jenni Wiethe Cornell
Just happened upon this site as I was looking for more info on the history of the Valley Theater. I am Louis Wiethe’s granddaughter and I have a fascination with his theater life and work. I have pictures of his theater during openings for “Around the World in 80 Days” (with him on an elephant) and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. I also have pictures of his cast from a movie he produced called “Little Laura and Big John”. It starred Karen Black and Fabian. I would love to have and share more info. Anyone who worked for him and has memories of his theater that would like to share them please email me!
