News About This Theater

Ashland Square Cinemas

The Ashland Theatre opened on March 27, 1942 with Henry Fonda and Gene Tierney in “Rings on Her Fingers”. Seating was provided for 1,250 in the orchestra and 250 in the balcony. The 1950 edition of Film Daily Yearbook gives the Ashland Theatre an address of 205 Center Street, Ashland, OH (could have been re-numbering over the years?).

In 1976 it was tripled, with seating provided for 200 in each auditorium

It was closed in January 2011. There are plans to restore the theatre back to its single screen configuration.

They are hoping to open in Summer 2022. In July of 2022, Chris Skinner, who had been the executive director of The Midland Theatre in Newark, Ohio for less than a year has been hired away to oversee the operation of this restored venue.

It has been the stated goal to have the theatre open every day. They also want the theatre to be an asset to everyone in the community. One of the goals to to make movies available to those people who have not been able to afford to go to a movie for many years.
