In the 1920’s, Hollywood was booming. Movies were immensely popular, and motion picture studios were building magnificent theatres all across the country. With a population of about 30,000 in 1927, Mansfield seemed an ideal spot for a majestic movie house. And so the Warner Management Company spent $500,000 to build the Ohio Theatre.
Today, the renovated and expanded theatre celebrates the imagination in each of us by presenting and producing live performances and symphonic music in an historic venue and to enlighten and enhance lives through education and outreach in the community and beyond.
