The former Geauga Cinema was built in 1939 and ran successfully for years, until finally closing in 1996.
Two years later, owner Larry Dolan donated the theater to the city, which then leased it to the Geauga Lyric Theater Guild for $1 per year. The Guild has since turned the Geauga Theater into a legitimate theater and has raised attendance from 1,000 to 20,000 patrons per year.
Renovations began in 2001, and with the first two phases of the restoration effort completed, the theater’s lobby and exterior were renovated and restored with a $300,000 grant from the Geauga Department of Community and Economic Development.
