When the Ohio Theater opened in 1928 many people in Columbus would at least have somewhat of an imaginative picture of the majesty waiting for them inside. Thomas W. Lamb, the same Scottish-born architect who unlocked the doors in 1926 to the Palace Theater, was now unveiling his next masterpiece. The Ohio Theater possessed a Spanish-Baroque style with an organ and orchestra to boot.
Live performance acts that were touring around the country and stopping over at the Palace Theater now also were including the Ohio Theater in their travel arrangements. Famous entertainers like, Milton Berle, Ray Bolger, Buddy Ebsen, Jean Harlow, Cab Calloway, Kate Smith and Jack Benny all graced the stage at the Ohio Theater.
The task of decorating the Ohio Theater fell to a newly graduated student from the Columbia School of Architecture by the name of Anne Dornan. Dornan spent over $1,000,000 collecting various furnishings from around the world, which was more money than the cost of the actually building itself.
The Ohio Theater fell into disarray during the decade of the 1960’s as many people in Columbus began branching out towards new suburban communities in the area. Faced with the real threat of being torn down, the people of central Ohio raised over 2 million dollars to save and maintain the Ohio Theater in 1969. The organization known as the Columbus Association for the Performing Arts has since acquired the Ohio Theater and they have given it a magnificent renovation.
