The history of performing arts in the capital city of Columbus can be found at the Ohio Theatre, the city?s historic theatre. Referred to as the ?Official Theatre of Ohio?, this building and institution can be found at 39 E. Street in Columbus, Ohio.

The Ohio Theatre was constructed in 1927 featuring a Spanish Baroque architectural style. The first event was a silent film ?The Divine Woman?. It also featured an orchestra and a Robert-Morton theatre organ, which still operational today.

The Ohio Theatre grew in popularity but it was closed down in 1969. An initiative led by Columbus Association for the Performing Arts (CAPA) saved it from demolition. The theatre was reopened in late 1969. Today, the theatre is the home of the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, Opera Columbus, and the CAPA Summer Movie Series. It was added to register of historic places in 1977.
