The Avenue Theatre was in operation in the early-1920’s with seating listed at 335. It was originally owned by Mrs. John Carlen and later by Frankel Theatres.

The theatre closed in the mid-1950’s and has since been demolished. Any further information or corrections on this theatre would be appreciated.

The Avenue Theatre, at the above address, was on a list of Cincinnati movie houses published in the March 29, 1915, issue of The Cincinnatian, the official publication of the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce. In that year it shared the 100 block of Fifth Street with three other movie houses; the Alhambra, the Colonial, and the Lubin.
