Gateway Film Center
Even though the crimson neon sign recalls that of a classic movie theater, the stadium seating and digital-projection system of Gateway Film Center point toward a modern polish. The same can be said of the cinema’s choice of films, a mix of classic pictures, arthouse darlings, and Hollywood blockbusters. The film center is also home to The Torpedo Room, a new restaurant founded by Liz Lessner of Columbus Food League, along with popcorn, candy, and a full bar with more than 20 draft beers.
