I would love to know more about this theatre. It’s listed as closed, but sometimes that information is incorrect and the theatre is actually demolished…hope that is not the case as Oxford is the home of Miami University of Ohio and every small college town should have a downtown theatre, imo.

“The Miami Western Theater operated from 1938 to 1988. In 1993, it became a bar and restaurant called First Run. The last known use for this building was an establishment called the Brick Street Bar”. As far as I know, the building still stands.
