Previous Names: Loew's Akron Theatre
Opened as Loew’s Akron Theatre on April 20, 1929 with Robert Ames in “The Voice of the City” on the screen and Loew’s Vaudeville on stage. The Wurlitzer 3 manual 13 Ranks organ was opened by organist Estelle Ruth. The Atmospheric styled and opulent theatre was designed by architect John Eberson. The exterior & façade was designed by Detroit based architect Charles Howard Crane. Integrating Moorish and Mediterranean design, the Civic Theatre is one of the largest Atmospheric style theatres still in existence.
Restored in 2001-2002, and still beautifully maintained, the renamed Akron Civic Theatre is the focal point of the arts community in this Ohio college town.
