Downtown Columbus

We in Columbus are lucky to have so many outstanding venues in which to enjoy a wide range of entertainment. And we aren't just talking about the Horseshoe (which is pretty outstanding). The Ohio Theatre seats 2,791 guests in breath-taking Spanish-Baroque surroundings, making a night at the symphony, the ballet, the Broadway Series and more one to remember.

If you've never been or if you've sat in a red velvet seat and dreamed of seeing behind the curtain, this Saturday CAPA is hosting a no-cost tour of the gorgeous theatre. This hour-long tour, which is part of the popular 2013 Summer Movie Series, offers a glimpse at the historic theatre complete with details on its history and restoration. You can also check out the theatre's lighting and enjoy a demonstration of the original 1928 "Mighty Morgan" theatre organ, which is played by featured organist Clark Wilson.

After the tour, nab a quick bite nearby and return for the 7:30 p.m. Summer Movie Series presentation of Fiddler on the Roof.
