The Ohio Theatre opened on November 15, 1919. Seating was listed at 1,500 which included balcony seating. The architect for the theatre was Norman H. Hill. The Ohio Theatre had two different organs. I could find no info on the first but the second was a Marr-Colton 3 Manual.
The Ohio Theatre was noted for many firsts in Indianapolis, it played the first nude film titled “This Nude World” in 1933. It had the first sound sex film in 1933 titled “The 7th Commandment”. The Ohio Theatre had the first reserved seat talkie in May of 1932 titled “Grand Hotel”.
The Ohio Theatre closed in 1970, and has since been demolished.
