Information for this tour was contributed by Scott Norwood.

Closed in 1987. This is a current picture of it as the "Playhouse Square" shopping center mini-mall abomination. This was my hometown theatre, and so I am pretty bitter about its closing. The theatre closed because it losts its lease, not because it was unsuccessful (to the contrary, it did great business with second-run art stuff and kids' matinees [which I attended regularly] in the '80s).
