A most beautiful theater. I have been to many theaters on Broadway in NYC and none of those theaters hold a candle to the Ohio Theater.

It is a beautiful theater that has been restored complete with a pipe organ. Ballet Met performs much of their season here, every summer they host classic films and in between there are multiple other entertainments.

The setting of this gorgeous, ornate theater enhances any production that it stages. Don't miss seeing a symphony concert, ballet or Broadway show here.

If you wish to see what the Golden Age of Theatre was like, look no further than the Ohio Theatre in downtown Columbus.

The Ohio Theatre is exactly how a REALTHEATRE 'S architecture represents! I feel privileged to be a part of its history and cultural contributions. I am so anxious to see Disney presents 'The Lion King' touring company forthe first time this October! I have my tickets, do you? PS--the summer movie series of old classics is something to be shared... More
