As part of the 2013 Summer Movie Series, CAPA offers free, guided tours of the historic Ohio Theatre. There is only one date left to take part this summer – Saturday, August 24, at 4 pm!

The hour-long tours will begin in the front lobby of the Ohio Theatre (39 E. State St.) and will include a look at the history and restoration of the official State Theatre of Ohio. Tours will also include an exhibition of the theatre’s lighting and a demonstration of the original 1928 “Mighty Morton” theatre organ by featured organist Clark Wilson.

The tour is free, but reservations are required and space is limited. To make a reservation, send an email to sms@capa.com with the number of people in your party. This tour does include stairs.
