This is my theatreof choice! Enjoy the grand design from your first step into this venue. Even my 6 year old grandson is captivated by its charm. I’ve been bringing him to the theatre since he was 4 years old. Arts appreciation 101 with Grammy.

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.

I think they put one in during renovations. I’d call the box office to check though.

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