A neighborhood second-run theatre located on the westside of Columbus, Ohio. The Old Trail Theatre was built as part of the new West Broad Street Shopping Center. The name “Old Trail” derives from its location on the historic National Highway. The movie house was “constructed of white painted brick, with stylized Chinese design motifs,” as reported in the Columbus Citizen newspaper. The theater opened on Sunday, August 8, 1948 with 1,300 seats, all on a single floor. The Old Trail Theatre had a short life, closing in the late spring of 1951.

Today the site is still a shopping center.
