News About This Theater
- Jan 23, 2007 — Highland Theater may be lost
The Highland Theatre was opened on March 31, 1938 with Humphrey Bogart in “Swing Your Lady”. Seating was provided for 1,700. It was the home of stage and screen entertainment for decades until it fell into disrepair and disuse.
In 2000, the theatre was rescued and restored and is now a popular art house and concert venue for this collegiate Ohio town.
As part of restoration, the Highland Theatre’s interior was gutted and replaced with a new auditorium that paid homage to the old movie house’s Art Deco past. The theatre now has an expanded stage and a greatly enhanced sound and lighting system. The seating capacity has been reduced to 600.
