The Olympia Theatre was a neighborhood theatre, located at E. 55th Street and Broadway Avenue in Cleveland. The theatre opened around 1913 as a vaudeville house, and had operated continuously as a movie theatre until 1980, when the theatre closed.
The theatre fell into disrepair, and when the Olympia Building was renovated in the 1980’s as apartments and doctors' offices, the auditorium was demolished to make way for off-street parking for the apartments, but the lobby is still there. No renovation was done to the lobby since the theatre closed.
In 2001 the Olympia Theatre was known as the ‘Luce Theatre’ when the film “Welcome To Collinwood” was shot in the East 55th/Broadway neighborhood.
