The Stillman Theatre, opened on the site of the 19th Century Stillman Hotel, which was razed in 1902, was built in 1916, and was the first true movie palace in Cleveland, one of the largest and most luxurious theaters ever built in Cleveland (or anywhere in the Midwest for that matter) at that time.
Acquired by the Loew’s circuit in the 1920’s, it was from then on known as the Loew’s Stillman Theatre. It had its greatest moment in 1939, when the Cleveland premiere of the epic “Gone With the Wind” was held at the Stillman.
In the late-1950’s, in a bid to increase declining audiences due to television, Loew’s had the Super Technirama 70 process installed at the Stillman.
However, in 1963, the theater was closed, and in 1965, most of the theater was demolished and replaced by a parking garage for the neighboring Statler Arms Apartments (the former Statler Hotel, which has been spectacularly restored to its 1920’s appearance).
