The Grand Opera House was opened August 19, 1896 and was designed by Pittsburg architect William Kauffman with 1,086 seats. On December 6, 1910 it was gutted by a fire. It was rebuilt and opened as the Alhambra Theatre on November 6, 1914 with a production of “The Quaker Girl”. Using the original façade which had survived the fire, the Alhambra Theatre was designed by Columbus architect Edward Elford and had 845 seats. It was built by the Elks, and was leased to Gus Sun who presented vaudeville. In 1916 it was renamed Grand Theatre.
On May 1, 1930 it was renamed Ohio Theatre following renovations. In 1946 it was taken over by the Selected Theatres Inc. and they did further renovations in 1949. The Ohio Theatre was renamed Cinema Ohio on December 5, 1969. It was closed in August 1973, and is still vacant in 2015.
