OBERLIN, OH — The 85 year old Apollo Theater is for sale after generations under the same family.

Offering low-price entertainment in downtown Oberlin for years, the theater has been operated by the Steel family since being purchased in 1923 by Gerome Steel. His sons William and Sandy Steel have run the theater since their father’s death in 1960, according to Sandy Steel.

William’s wife, Arlene Steel, who still sells tickets in the old-fashioned glassed-in ticket booth by the sidewalk, said the next generation of her family is not interested in continuing the family tradition.
