Built in 1831 was the Wesley Methodist Chapel. It was converted into the Grand Opera House in the 1885 and had a new facade in an Italianate style. Around 1928 it was renamed Grand Theatre and was equipped with an organ. It became the Madison Theatre in 1940, with seating listed at 848. It was operated by H.H. Johnson Theatres. The Madison Theatre was located three blocks east of the Ohio Theatre on W. Main Street, also operated by H.H. Johnson Theatres.
