The Ohio Theater

LIMA, OH — Does anyone know anything about the old Ohio Theater in Lima Ohio? As far as I know it’s been a nightclub that has changed its music styles during the past 20 years. But does anyone know anything more than that? Is the current owner looking to sell, or willing to consider it?

Not sure present ownership, but the Ohio would be a great place to reinstall a theatre pipe organ….from what I understand, most of the original architecture is still in place.

I found an old postcard view of the Ohio Theater posted here (Google’s cache of the site):

Would you be interested in a theatre in Beaver Falls, PA just over the Ohio line, for sale?

The original 3 manual 10 rank Wurlitzer is in the Downers Grove High School in Downers Grove, IL. The organ has been there since the late 1960s. Page Pipe Organs were also built in Lima.
