Located across from Ohio State University, the building has a mural of a past famous OSU football player still intact, although the building has been a restaurant and other businesses for several years. The marquee still advertises the current tenants.
The University Theater was opened in 1947, with seating for 1,000, all on a single floor. It was equipped with a Hammond electric organ. The foyer featured a mural of Charles W.(Chic) Harley Jr., Ohio State’s first and most famous All-American foorball player.
General Cinemas acquired and twinned the University Theater in the 1970’s. I remember seeing “Woodstock” and the re-release of “Fantasia” through the smoke ;) before it was twinned.
