Opened as the Indianola Theatre on February 19, 1938. The only independent neighborhood theater left in Columbus, the Studio 35 still shows double features and has added beer, pizza, subs, and salads to its concessions.

The Columbus Dispatch reported on this story on 3/3/2012:

“Studio 35, the venerable North Side movie theater, plans to close for as long as two months for renovations, starting on Friday.

The theater, 3055 Indianola Ave., will kick off the overhaul with a Friday party featuring free admission to Anchorman. The gathering will be its last scheduled event until a May 17 appearance by director Kevin Smith.

Co-owner Eric Brembeck said the theater will undergo an “overall refreshing,” including new paint and lighting. Bigger-ticket changes could include renovated bathrooms and a digital projection system, though those details have not been completed.

“We’re talking with the bank, seeing if it makes sense to do that,” he said. “It’s our objective to do that, but I haven’t signed any contracts yet.”

Since purchasing the theater in 2006, Brembeck and his partners have made several improvements to the 74-year-old venue, including new seats and a new heating and air-conditioning system. It’s now time for more, he said.

“The theater’s starting to show its age a little bit,” Brembeck said. “The idea is to enhance and improve the theater-going experience.”"

I drove past a few days ago. They had the front door open and you could see the back wall! Looks like everything is gone.

35’s facebook “We are looking at possibly donating the murals from the auditorium back to The Cleve or to the Columbus Historical Society, which will have an exhibit at COSI, so the history can live on.”
