The Friends of the Ohio Theatre is a non profit 501c3 who's mission is to renovate,and restore, the Ohio Theatre in Lima, Ohio. The Ohio Theatre, located at 122 W North Street has been a Lima landmark for nearly one hundred years. Over the years the building has been used as a vaudeville house, a movie palace, a nightclub, and as a special event space. Unfortunately, time has taken it's toll on the building, but thankfully almost all of it's original charm remains. (Even if it requires some refreshing and repairs) The Friends of the Ohio Theatre's mission is to ensure that this grand building remain a part of Lima for years to come.
“I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” ― Oscar Wilde
