The Ohio Theatre is known as the Official Theatre of the State of Ohio, with an incredibly designed interior of Spanish-Baroque architecture. The 2,791-seat theater hosts a range of events, from classical and modern dance, to family shows and large-scale concerts. It was originally a movie palace, saved from demolition in 1969 and completely restored. In 1977, it was named a National Historic Landmark. The theater is owned by the non-profit arts management organization CAPA (The Columbus Association for the Performing Arts), which was originally established to save the theater in 1969.

The Palace Theatre is located at the base of the LeVeque Tower on Broad Street. It is a 2,827-seat theatre which was designed to resemble the Palais de Versailles in France. The venue was originally built as a vaudeville theatre, meaning that the acoustics are world-class. The Palace Theatre held the most live shows in Columbus during the '30s, '40s, and '50s, and most of the top names in the entertainment business have performed at the venue. In 1989, CAPA purchased the Palace Theatre, and now the theatre hosts CAPA-sponsored shows every year, as well as performances by Broadway Across America.
