Oxford Theater - 2034 Ontario Road, Cleveland, Ohio

Located in downtown Cleveland on Ontario Street opposite May & Co. building, and at the corner of Champlain Street (which is not in existence today). Little is known about the Oxford Theatre, but it holds a special place in movie theatre history as one of the only (were there others?) theatres that contained two differently programmed screens in the same auditorium. Patrons could see either the show on the right or the left of the auditorium for the price of one admission. There were approximately 45 seats for each screen. It was open by October 1912, and operated into 1913, maybe beyond?
