175 Nationwide Blvd., Arena District
Columbus has one of the highest numbers of screens per capita in the country, so it's no small feat that the Arena Grand was chosen (once again) as the city's best movie theater by readers. Aside from being the first theater operating Downtown in several decades, it's significantly raised the bar on how great the movie-going experience can be when done right. Arena Grand is a testament to the little things: superior sound, comfortably roomy stadium seating and non-seizure-inducing color schemes. And did we mention the second-level bistro and cocktails?
Runners-up: Studio 35, AMC Easton
