This should be listed as open as the cinemas have reopened since the tornado in the same building, although with additions and renovations.

Hopefully someday they will reopen the drive-in back up.

That ad is for the downtown Schine’s Van Wert Theatre, which is probably the 800 seat house referred to above. I know that it had been closed for quite awhile by the mid-1990s. The repurposed building still stands, minus marquee and decorative frills, on the northwest corner of East Main and North Market Streets.
