This was originally a Mid-States theatre, like most of the first-run houses in Cincinnati that were not Showcases. Mid-States' entire operation ultimately got folded into Loews, and then Loews sold them all to National Amusements.

It just hit me – Northgate, Tri-County, Kenwood, 275 East…all the multiplexes in Cincinnati that National Amusements inherited from Loews are gutted or demolished. Wow, I am really old!

I think that RKO-Stanley Warner Theaters opened it, not Loew’s.

I remember this theater was known for it’s 70mm engagements. I only went there once in 89' to see Indiana Jones & the last crusade, It was spectacular ! I also remember Die Hard in 88' playing there & True Lies in 94' I know Die Hard was playing in 70mm but i’m not sure if True Lies was in 70mm . Though there were talks of it playing in certain theaters in 70mm in 94' i’m not sure if they did away with it by then.

I worked there briefly in ‘89, before the Loews at the Kenwood Towne Center opened. I was a projectionist at both places that summer. It was a big deal that they were going from reels to platters!

On a side note, does anyone remember the name of the arthouse Downtown during that same time? I only recall it being called The Movies. Any help would be appreciated.

Didn’t Mid-States theaters become USA Theaters before Loews took over?
