Support Ohio Theatre Boiler Repair

Ohio_Theatre_2011

Hello! It has been an exciting year at the Ohio Theatre and Event Center on Lagrange Street. We’ve doubled our volunteer efforts, expanded our capacity to host more rental events, and partnered with great organizations to offer more arts & cultural programming to the community.

This Winter we learned that our boiler heating the front lobby, foyer, and bathrooms needs to be repaired causing a halt in some theatre activities. The auditorium itself is warm and uses a separate unit replaced in 2013. However, this issue directly impacts our ability to welcome potential rental clients into the space and can be too cold to host our kids after school programming.

We received project estimates from Complete Refridgeration LLC, the repairs will cost over $7,000. As a result, we are asking for donations through this online campaign.

We want to thank all theatre-goers and generous donors for helping us put on great arts and cultural programs like, the Folk Festival, Spoken, and the upcoming Toledo International Film Festival.

Please consider giving today to help us warm the space and resume hosting community events! Thank you!

The preservation and operation of the Ohio Theatre and Event Center is stewarded by United North, a community development corporation in Toledo’s Old North End. Since it’s renovation and re-opening in 2013, the Ohio Theatre continues to host arts programming that engages residents and supports small businesses. Our mission is to promote revitalization in our community by providing a gathering space for arts and culture.
