We are so used to the awesome theaters here in Cleveland & were surprised to find a similar setting at the beautiful Ohio Theater in Columbus. You can see it is well cared for. Acoustics were great & seats were very comfortable.

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.

The history and design of the building is worth seeing any show. I have been many times for various events (free Columbus Symphony concert, Book of Mormon, Phantom) and there’s a great event parking garage across the street. (When I saw Book of Mormon the...More

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