Located in northwest Columbus across the street from the affluent Columbus suburb of Upper Arlington, this theatre opened on December 25 1966 with Tony Curtis in “Arrivederci Baby”. The chain also opened Loews Morse Road in Columbus on the same day.
Loews was so proud of this theatre that they featured it in their 1966 annual report:
“The accent is on luxury, comfort, color and modernity in all of Loew’s new Theatres. Each provides acres of free parking, rocking-chair seats, giant 60~foot screen, stereo sound, all-weather air conditioning, art gallery and attractive concession services.
“Each new Loews Theatre features an art gallery, in which the works of outstanding local artists are displayed. These galleries attract great interest”.
Originally a 1,200-seat single screen, Loews Arlington was later twinned.
In January 1990, the Columbus zoning board approved construction of an addition containing a third screen, but I don’t know if it was ever built. It was closed in 1992. On March 3, 1993, a Columbus Dispatch article reported that the theatre was demolished in order to build a Sears Hardware store, which still stands on this site.
