Glad to read about the glass block. First I’ve heard of that coming back. Lots of pics on their facebook and instagram. That’s my pic at the bottom. They gutted the lobby.
A interview with the Grandviews new management to Columbus Monthly confirms 150 seats.

Torn down last year. Thanks for pics.
Torn down last year for new coaster.
The facade has been brightened up. The building is white with yellow awning and red state letters. The new owner said he was finally taking a day off after 6 months. He showed an employee how to use the projector. Drove from Columbus and was not disappointed.
Plans to reopen in late March with new management.
The grandview is closed.

For sale. 349 grand.
now reads “the world class kings theatre welcomes you.”
The marquee is now has more detail on the top that replicates the original.
What a shame. Didn’t they restore the exterior?
Ohio Theatre installed a new Orchestra Shell. The new one is lighter, easier to handle and makes the Orchestra sound better. Cost a million dollars.
Building still standing but marquee is gone.
Dispatch article….Star Cinemas in Grove City, 2384 Stringtown Rd., has closed, a victim of increased competition and the prohibitive cost of converting to digital projection equipment.
“We built the theater 15 years ago, and I think there were 175 screens that opened after we opened,” said Phil Roberts, managing partner. “It seemed like every movie chain thought Columbus was the place to build a movie theater.”
The recent conversion of movie theaters to digital projection from the 35 mm format was the final blow, he said.
“It would have cost $650,000 to roll out digital,” Roberts said, and that was too much.
Star Cinemas’ Hillsboro location will stay open.
Closed. Door says thanks for 15 years.
