Oh, so beautiful. I always enjoy going to a performance here and get the feel of a by-gone era. Too bad there is no way to add more restrooms.

The Ohio Theater, a landmark in Columbus, continues to inspire people to new heights through productions such as the Lion King. The venue is a perfect place for stage productions as well as to the hear performances of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra. The interior architecture is amazing and a must see. Enjoy!

Just visited this place for my wife's Bar swearing in ceremony. The theater and the building are very cool and the view from any seat seems pretty good.

Lamb, is host to many modern day performances and groups. While national shows perform in Columbus, some of the best entertainment opportunities result from local collaborations with the Columbus Symphony, BalletMet, and local food artisans such... More

One class place, painting is out of this world. Painting by the Martin Co. Ushers for you with flash lights. Have seen many shows there. Don't miss this if you are in to art. It is Great.

Olivia, "the manager", as she calls herself, upon letting mayhem take place in front of the gift stand, became really upset when I mentioned that I was standing in line and she allowed someone to cut right in front of me. Well, Ohio Theater is great. No bad seats. The Lion Kings is awesome! Olivia is out of place and... More

We were here Nov 1 to see Lion King and earlier this year to see our daughter in a dance/tumbling event. I am in awe looking at the detail and design of this place every time I go inside it. Make an excuse to go inside and make it down an aisle to the stage and just look around and... More

Beautiful theater. Great view from all seats. Intimate atmosphere. The Lion King was spectacular. The theater is small enough you feel like you're part of it.

This is a very old theater but doesn't look old at all. Came and saw the Lion King which was absolutely fantastic. And conveniently located downtown and across from the State House. Hope to make another visit someday soon!
