the cleves floor has been leveled from back to front of the building so there is a big difference in floor height about 20 feet from the front door.

The Cleve Theatre was designed by the F&Y Building Service, according to the latest version of the theater’s official web site.

Thanks – when was the reopening day, and what is the theatre now being used for?

Ron I drove passed the Cleve yesterday and nothing has changed.

According the the Linden Cleve Theater website, the theatre will be holding a COME CATCH THE VISION event on March 16, 2013. “Join us for an exciting day of fun, community and the arts. This celebration of the CLEVE theater’s future promises to be an inspiration to you and the entire Linden community.”

From that website, it appears that they have officially changed the name to ‘Linden Cleve Theatre’.

Can we change the name back to just Cleve theater? Nothing has happened in the 6 years they said they were going to renovate. Not one change to the building. Also the website doesn’t work anymore.

I agree with Keith here…should just be the Cleve.

Also address should be 1750 Cleveland Avenue. That is confirmed by newspaper records and the Franklin County Auditor property database.

1750 is also the address displayed on the building itself in Google street view.
