Long recognized among the community’s cultural landmarks, the Akron Civic Theatre has a rich and spectacular history.
It has provided the community with a venue for quality entertainment and live performances for over seventy years.
During that time, hundreds of thousands of people have been thrilled by various theatrical presentations, both on stage and on screen.
The theater was built in 1929 by Marcus Loew and designed by famed theater architect, John Eberson. The interior structure was fashioned after a Moorish castle featuring Mediterranean decor, including medieval carvings, authentic European antiques and Italian alabaster sculptures.
Among facilities of its size, the Civic is one of only five remaining atmospheric theaters in the country where patrons experience a twinkling star-lit sky and intermittent clouds moving across the horizon, all while sitting inside the auditorium.
