Newark’s Midland Theatre gets state cash

Commercial Real Estate . ..The operators of the renovated Midland Theatre in Newark are getting some help from the state as they make continued improvements to the 82-year-old landmark.

The Ohio Cultural Facilities Commission recently approved a $300,000 grant to the Newark Midland Theatre Association Inc. The group wants to make several improvements to the performance center and concert hall, including adding a dressing room shower and box office and board room renovations and roof improvements.

The additions come a decade after the Midland opened to the public following an eight-year, $8.5 million restoration and, for decades before that, closed doors. Longaberger Co. and late founder Dave Longaberger bought the theater in 1992, 14 years after it closed, and began the restoration. Longaberger later turned the theater over to the nonprofit association.

The Cultural Facilities Commission in the past 22 years has disbursed more than $400 million in capital funds set aside for improvements at theaters, museums, sports venues and other historical sites.
