I saw Jersey Boys there. I saw several concerts there & 50 yrs. ago I saw movies there & I thought the place was great as a young man & now as an old man. It is a real treasure. They could not build a place like this now. Not a bad seat in the house either.

We visited the Oh Theater for a Bill O'Riley show. A wonderful theater. They have really tried to keep the historical aspect of the building along with a new concept also. A very inviting place. The ushers were very friendly and knew all about their theater. They are all volunteers. Highly recommend a visit when in Cleveland.

We love coming to the Ohio Theater to see the Columbus Symphany Orchestra perform. This is a great destination for those who love music. This theater is lovely, well maintained and the sound of the performances that we have attended are always excellent, no matter where seated.

Such a beautiful theater. It is easy to find and close to parking which is also nice. The summer movie series they hold here is fantastic and should be on an Columbus dweller or visitor to-do list.

I've been going to the summer film series at Ohio Theater for years. Tickets are just $4 and it's an amazing experience. It's worth the ticket price just to go in and take a look around. The intricate architecture, the red velvet seats, the red curtains, the organist who plays before the movie and during intermission, and the ushers wearing... More

Perfect setting for a movie or show. A gem to be enjoyed and wonderful sound. Really neat venue for summer movies and with the organ it is extra special

Went here with my wife for a Motown concert and it was a really good time. Until then I have never been in this theater. Now I'll know to go there for another concert.
