Regal Cinemas opened the site in 1999 and closed it two years later.

Marquee Cinemas than leased the theatre and reopened it March 2004. Marquee Cinemas was forced to close the theatre on Saturday December 3, 2005 for unpaid rent to landlord Ronald Benderson 1995 Trust.

Ronald Benderson 1995 Trust has filed a lawsuit against Marquee Cinemas to collect the unpaid rent. Franklin County Common Pleas Court judge set a court date of November 2006 for the lawsuit for the rent.

The Consumer Square mall was demolished last fall.

The Dispatch article I linked to says “In one case, a movie theater was built near Consumer Square, only to be demolished within a few years.” Does that sentence refer to this theatre? Was it demolished along with the mall, or before the mall?

Can someone confirm whether this theatre was demolished or whether it is still standing empty?

Demolished. The theater was the first to go, then the entire Consumer Square plaza. The theater was only open for a few years, closed, opened again under another name, closed again and demolished soon after. Traffic congestion and poor city planning is to blame for the death of this area.

Thank you. What is being built where the theatre and shopping center were?

Ron – you get around as much as I do – I never knew you lived in the Columbus area before you were in Boston. So did I – Small world, eh? :–)

I’m probably on the wrong page again, as I usually am, but I’m working on columns for my website about my years of theater attending, and I need to know about a couple on the east side of Columbus. First up, what multiplex was directly or possibly diagonally across the street from Eastland? I seem to remember it having at least six screens, although I could be wrong – I was in it only once, having travelled up from Lancaster to see “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home”. I caught a bear of a cold because it was the middle of December and they had the air conditioning on; it was freezing in that place.

We also went to a couple of theaters in the Reynoldsburg/Whitehall area with my aunt and her family in the early 80s. I’m not even sure if they were the same theater. I remember seeing the films “Stripes”, “Risky Business” and “Neighbors” in this/these theaters. I don’t even know what the road was – I lived in Newark and later Lancaster, and didn’t travel to Columbus very often. But I seem to remember seeing all three movies in a single screen theater, or maybe a twin. For some reason the name “Town and Country” sticks out to me, but it’s been almost 20 years since I left the area, so I’m not at all sure.

So if anyone out there can help me out, I’d appreciate it!

There were a couple of AMC multiplexes on either side of Hamilton Road just north of Eastland Mall, which don’t have pages on CinemaTreasures. The old cinema in the mall does have a page here.

The Forum was on the south side of Refugee Road just east of the mall, but it had only 3 screens.

On East Main Street in Whitehall there were a Town & Country Cinema (General Cinemas) and Cinema East (local independent). Click on ‘Ohio’ near the top of this page, view all, sort by city, and then look at Columbus and Whitehall (and Bexley) theatres.

Also, on East Livingston Ave near Reynoldsburg was the York Plaza Cinema, originally built as a Jerry Lewis cinema. That one is also listed here.

Directly north of the Eastland Mall was AMC Eastland Plaza 6, a simple multiplex with 3 theatres on each side of the lobby.

Across the street from this was Eastland Centre 8. This was a very different floorplan from the other AMC’s in town, and I was told it was not very efficient.
