  • What a beautiful theater! It reminds me of the (formerly) Powers auditorium in Youngstown, but with much more intricate decor. The moving clouds on the ceiling are a nice touch. Just walking in the front door makes you consider if you are dressed up enough for the occasion. Very classy, stay classy Akron
  • Went to see Josh Gates, he is the bomb! He is so engaging and interesting. The place was packed. The theater itself is beautiful and I can't wait for another chance to see something else there. For a great show and beautiful venue I would recommend the Akron Civic Theater!!
