News About This Theater
A large single screen theatre in the Columbus suburb of Whitehall, just east of the Town & Country Shopping Center. Seating was provided 1,000 with 850-seats in the orchestra and 150-seats in the balcony.
It was opened by Charlie Sugarman in 1965 with Peter O'Toole in “Lord Jim” and ran its last movie, “Harlem Nights”, on Sunday, January 7, 1990. In its heyday, it was a favorite venue for 70mm screenings of big-event movies such as “The Empire Strikes Back”, “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom”, and “Alien”. In fact it was the main 70mm house in the 1970’s & 1980’s. In later years it was operated by Chakeres Theaters Inc.
