Just the ambiance of the entrance alone is enough to set you back 100 years in time. It gives you a reason to dress up appropriately and for practicing good manners and behaviors for everyone. The programs are always exceptional and theater owners and Columbus should be very proud of this gem.

We attended a Broadway Series Musical. The Ohio Theater is a wonderful theater. It is worth paying extra for the seats up closer to the stage.

A trip to Columbus, and central Ohio would not be complete without taking in a movie, or concert at the beautiful Ohio theater. They show movies in the summer, and feature organ music before the film and intermission. The Ohio theater has wonderful acoustics, for your listening enjoyment of concerts, the symphony, or one of the many Broadway shows that... More

The Ohio Theater is a real architectural gem. In addition, the Summer Movie Series, Broadway Plays and CAPA event are all of a very high quality

We always attend the Nutcracker Ballet at Christmas. Lovely old theater. Well worth the experience, parking in the State House garage makes it very convenient.

No matter what show is there, find an excuse to visit the Ohio Theater. The Summer Movie Series is a good, and inexpensive option. The theater is a spectacular venue that was very nearly torn down about 40 years ago.

If you're new to Columbus or just visiting. The Ohio Theater is a fantastic place to see a play, film or concert. The venue itself is a classic, and is incredibly ornate on the inside. My favorite seats are in the Loge.
