The Theater District, bound by Chester Avenue, Prospect Avenue, East 18th, East 9th and East 12th Streets, came into being at the turn of the 20th century, when Cleveland emerged as a thriving metropolis. Built between 1890-1928, the area hosted a variety of fine retail stores, theaters, prestigious clubs, restaurants, and distinct office buildings. The rise of television and flight to the suburbs sent downtown entertainment into a death spiral, until a 1970 grass roots effort saved from demolition the surviving post-World War I theaters (the State, Ohio, Hanna, Allen, and Palace), making it the "world's largest theater restoration project." It became a catalyst for reinvestment in downtown properties, restoring civic pride and giving testimonial to the creative vision of the city's civic leaders and citizenry. By the year 2000, Cleveland's Theater District boasted the nation's 2nd largest performing arts center.
