From 49 to 87 years old...we all enjoyed the summer movies at the Ohio Theater. Loved the organ player and the "old time" feel and atmosphere. Please continue this.

we went to see the Orchestra for my son's school assignment. The discount tickets for student rate were great! Staffs were super helpful and friendly. The ambient of the place is great and the performance was excellent. Definitely will be back.

Went to see Phantom of the Opera here, and I couldn't have picked a better venue. It looks like an old time theater, with red and yellow and just super pretty. Although it's kinda claustrophobic with how many people are mushed together.

What an AMAZING theatre!! Such an easy pick up of tickets at will call! The theatre is absolutely stunning! Pictures don't do it justice! The performance was so enjoyable for my two 9 Year olds I had with me. We will definitely be back!

It is always a treat to see a performance here. Slightly smaller place so it feels more intimate. Nice acoustics. Easy parking at the statehouse.

Due Amici is a fantastic Italian restaurant downtown that is less than a ten minute walk. Would recommend reservations for a weekend night.
