Opening attractions were Where Time Began, Jaws 2, Grease, Return from Witch Mountain, Heaven Can Wait and Revenge of the Pink Panther.

This theatre had projection rooms at ground level and used a periscope system to raise the image above the audience.

Is it still standing? This page says ‘Renovating’ which I somewhat doubt.

I drove by the location today. The building is still there and is now primarily a Dollar General store. The post office is located just at the north end of the building. A portion between the Post Office and the store is for lease.

I worked the concession stand there for a year (‘85-'86, just out of high school. Didn’t pay much, but it was a lot of fun. Until they opened the 8 across the street, it was the biggest multi-screen theater in Columbus, IIRC. Late night work parties were fun. They had to screen the movie before showing it to the public anyway, so we would do that, fix broken seats, etc.
The rushes were crazy. Two big ice machines couldn’t keep up with demand. And changing out a 50# drum of hot oil during a rush was an adventure.
Sad to see it as a dollar store now, but time marches on.
