Based on little information, the Overland Theatre appears to have opened in 1913 at 840 West Central Avenue in Toledo by August Nex. It was named for the Overland car which was being manufactured less than a mile away at the Willys-Overland Motor Company factory. (John Willys had changed the name of the company from Willys to Willys-Overland in 1912 four years after purchasing the Overland Motor Company.)

The theater changed hands several times likely fulfilling a 20-year lease cycle closing in the early 1930s under its final operator listed as H. Marsh. The location became home to a long running radio and hi-fi store named Jamieson’s Hi-Fidelity. The building was demolished and its diminutive space became a used car lot. That parcel of land was sold for just $500 in 2008 according to Toledo property records.
