45 years ago tonight, Sunday, February 9, 1969, Loew's State and Ohio theatres closed. Star! at Loew's Ohio and Ice Station Zebra (in Cinerama) at Loew's State were the last in a string of flops for Loew's Inc. A little over three years later they were almost demolished to make way for a parking lot. Fortunately that did not happen.
Box Office, February 10, 1969.
The final notice was brief, Box Office, February 17, 1969.
