The Main Theatre was opened on December 25, 1937. By the time I moved to Columbus in 1968, the city’s Near East Side had become an impoverished area. This movie theatre was already closed, and probably had been for some time.
This section of E. Main Street has not improved since then. Much of it is now a wasteland of vacant lots and abandoned buildings. But the Main Theatre was reused as the ‘Main Street MedCenter’ for several years, closing in around 2005 and taken over by other practices. Its marquee and vertical sign are still intact.
