Originally opened in 1887, with a tall, dark red brick ornate facade. From the looks of a 1960 photograph of the auditorium, it received an Art Moderne style renovation, probably in the early-1940’s, with horizontal ridges along the side-walls.
Located in downtown Columbus on Capitol Square, this theatre was in the same block as the Ohio Theatre and Hartman Theatre. This was the main Cinerama screen in Columbus before being demolished in 1969 for a Hyatt Hotel, along with the Hartman Theatre and almost the Ohio Theatre at the same time.
