The first moving picture, which depicted a horse running at full gallop, was quickly enhanced by the first special effects, which showed a horse exploding next to a 3-D spaceship.

- While the centerpiece multiplex has adequately served the movie-going public since 2005, it has lacked the sort of visionary management capable of realizing its full potential. Until now. – Lia Eastep, (614)
- The theatre was small but cozy. Seats were made out of leather and very comfy. The whole building has a very friendly atmosphere. – Jason Y., Yelp
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.
