Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

Located directly across the street from the State Theatre. The Vale Theatre was opened in 1921. Renamed Ohio Theatre in 1932, it was listed as (Closed) in 1933-1934. It had reopened by 1935 and operated through the 1960’s. Appears to still be standing with a bricked over facade.

The “New Motion Picture Theatres Planned” column of The Moving Picture World for July 3, 1920, had this item:

“UHRICHSVILLE, O.— C. S. Valo has plans by Arnold & Lewis, New Philadelphia, O., for two-story brick and concrete moving picture theatre, 60 by 100 feet, to cost $35,000.”
I’ve been unable to find out if the name “C. S. Valo” might have been a typo, but as it is so close to Vale it does seem a possibility. The only mention of the Vale Theatre itself I’ve found is in a 1925 newspaper article, in which it is mentioned only in passing. It would be quite a coincidence if someone named Valo had a theater built in Uhrichsville in 1920 and a few years later there was a theater there called the Vale, and there wasn’t a connection between them.
