7. Livingston Avenue Theatre (1946)
1567 E. Livingston Ave., Columbus, Ohio

Owner: Thomas C. Smith
The Livingston Avenue Theatre opened in 1946 as a movie house in the Driving Park neighborhood. The theater boasts an eye-catching Art Deco marquee and styling. Over the decades it has seen several uses (some controversial) but has been vacant for over a decade. The Livingston Area Commission recently approved zoning variances for a proposed 45-unit affordable senior housing development on the site. Proposed plans incorporate the theater’s lobby and façade, but much of the remaining structure will be demolished.
