Someone brought this article to me yesterday. We hope to have the theatre re-opened by the middle of September.

Community News - Grandview, Ohio, April 2, 1926

Only High Class Motion Pictures Are to be Shown in New Playhouse.
At Grandview and Second Aves.
Carl L. Shafer Owner and Builder -- Seating Capacity 600 -- Pipe Organ a Feature.
Grandview is to have a new $75,000* theater in operation by the middle of next summer.

Ground will be broken at once at Grandview and Second Aves. with a view of having the new motion picture house completed by July 1.

Carl L. Shafer , 1629 Weston Pl., widely known in the community, is the owner and builder. Mr. Shafer bought the property, just north of the H. E. Day Radio and Electric Shop, 1187 Grandview Ave., through J. F. (Jack) Radebaugh.

He built the Linden Theater and managed it for several months.

The new theater will be an attractive one-story structure of brick and terra cotto, and will contain two store rooms. The seating capacity of the theater will be 600, and it will contain the latest in projecting machines and seats and a pipe organ will be installed.

Shows will be held daily, with a matinee on Saturday, according to present plans. Only high class pictures will be shown, including those of a number of foremost producers, such as Metro-Goldwyn, First National, and Paramount. Newsreels will also be displayed.

The play-house will be known as the Grandview Theater.

* Just over $900,000 adjusted for inflation into 2009.
