Ohio Theater

Saw The Lion King this past October here. Beautiful theater and parking is simple and easy. Seating is great, not a bad seat in the house.

Ohio Theatre is a classical theatre with classic decor! Though the theatre seems small compare to other theaters I have been so far, the interior is amazing!

Whether it's a play or a classic film or music, it's a great venue. Beautifully renovated theater -- one of those beautiful places that every city should have.

Amazing! Not a bad seat in the house. Not to mention it is beautiful inside and out. Not too badly priced either, we say right below the upper balcony for $50 a person.

This fully restored theater was built by the Loew's Movie Theater chain in partnership with United Artists in 1928. This was the age of the silent theater, so a huge grand pipe organ was build and was named the "Mighty Morton" with an accompanying orchestra pit. Designed by the Scottish-born architect, Thomas W.

The Harmony Project rocked the beautiful Ohio Theatre last night. I would like to tell you about the 200 volunteer singers who encompass The Harmony Project and make positive changes all around Columbus but this review is about the theatre itself. The building is simply beautiful inside. It's gold ornate grandeur and crystal chandler will amaze you. The seats are... More

The Ohio Theater is a lovely venue! It is always wonderful to just sit before a show and take in the atmosphere and admire the decor. The acoustics are excellent and the refreshment/gathering area is very nice. The beauty of this timeless place makes every event special!

I am an usher for the Columbus Association of Performing Arts and have ushered at the Ohio for the Broadway Series and Ballet Met as well as their summer movie series. I have also attended the Columbus Symphony Orchestra programs. For someone who has never been there they will find it to be a wonderful experience.

Built in 1927, and as fresh and inspiring as when it was first built. The details are amazing! A must see in Columbus.
