It is located in downtown Vermilion, Ohio. The building dates to 1870 when it was a dry good store. It became a theater around the 1930’s and was open until the 1980’s. A few years ago it was purchased, gutted, and turned into a retail coffee/decorating/antique shop.
My wife and I purchased it in May of 2002 and opened it in November of 2002. We used the lobby and 60 feet for retail (music boxes, radios, record players, organs, clocks, windmills, sales and service). The remaining (rear) 50 feet contain the stage and balance of the auditorium. Our plans were to restore the building (50' area and stage first) and return to showing movies. We purchased a Wurlitzer Horseshoe Theater Organ Console and planned to eventually install it with the pipe chamber above stage right. We also hoped to install a temporary screen in the showroom area in order to do some screenings. Unfortunately these plans never came to fruition.
