Long recognized among the community’s cultural landmarks, the Akron Civic Theatre has a rich and spectacular history.Planning Akron trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.
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.
Akron Civic Theatre Reviews
There are so few of these old theaters left in the US and I'm so happy that Akron has seen fit to invest in keeping the Civic Theatre alive. I've been attending programs and events there for 50 years ... more »
The events hosted by the Akron civic theater are never disappointing. The staff are always helpful... more »
Beautifully kept theatre. Every seat is a good seat as each row slopes upward. Quality sound system as well. Could use better snack options, only had large soft salted pretzels and chocolates. But the pretzel we bought was good. Also good selection of mixed drinks and craft beer at the event we attended.
Absolutely beautiful theatre. We saw the Red Hot Chili Pipers and they were amazing. The staff is helpful and it is easy to find seats. We had an easy time finding parking even though the street is under construction.
