Hello Lost,

Is that a recent picture?

Hasn’t this theatre reopened yet????

I know they been having problems getting a decent person to run this place…but if it hasn’t reopened yet, there is something serious going on over there. What more is that I would be concerned about this theatre’s future.


It is a beautiful theatre and I do hope that it does reopen.

Hello Lost….

Ahhh, that is MUCH better. Always like to see something on the marquee. So that means they are open again. That is a good thing. I do hope that the place is in the right hands this time around. A couple years ago they had some financial botching and they closed for a while.

The only thing worse than a blank marquee is one that says “Closed”, “Out of Business”, and the infamous “Temporarily Closed” (a nod to the reverse side of the Styx Paradise Theatre album).

Also a Sandusky Theatre advertised in 1911 and onwards, but no other corroborating information seems to be available.

My great aunts were in vaudeville and played in Sandusky at the State Theatre. I believe it was the Schine’s State Theatre. This was in April, 1929.

The Sandusky State theater had a Page 3/8 organ installed in 1928. This organ’s main cable was accidentally cut during remodeling work. It was unplayable as of 2005. However, the pipes are being attended to, and the cable is being readied for reconnection. The console is going for restoration to a qualified shop in Indiana. It is expected that the Page will be back in full use sometime later this year.
