No the marquee was removed from the Schines Wooster Theater in 1988. But at the time that it was removed it still had the Schines Name on it.

I am surprised that as late as 1983 the Schine name was still on the marquee. Was it still there at demolition? There were very few buildings that retained the Schine name on their marquee.

Lost has come through again though I must say that every time I view the photo of this theatre at the top I just shake my head that the City of Wooster let this theatre go to the ages! That marquee was Awesome!

Interesting site and so sad that this art deco Schine theatre was demolished in a college town like Wooster.

Interesting to read that this theatre didn’t get demolished until 1999, but at least we have the one b/w above. Great marquee!

Would like to see the demo photos that were posted in 2002, but couldn’t find any when I went to the link.

Very sad that this art deco theatre was demolished to make way for a “tacky local jewelry store”.

frenchjr25: I can’t seem to bring up the geocities.com site for the Wooster Theatre/demolition. Yes, such a shame that an art deco, single screen theatre in a college town would be demolished for a tacky jewelry store. Very sad! I’ve been to the town, but was before my interest in theatres, but did tour the Cat’s Meow business that is headquartered in Wooster.

When I was growing up in Wooster I knew this place as the “Theatrical”, a nightclub that was eventually shut down for drug and prostitution problems. In my teens I always had a dream of buying it and turning it into a coffeehouse/theater. Sadly, this theater was too far gone and was demolished to make way for a tacky local jewelery store. Sad, very sad.
