Long recognized among the community’s cultural landmarks, the Akron Civic Theatre has a rich and spectacular history. 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.

Mission: To provide quality entertainment.

The Millennial Theatre Project Community Input Survey

At the Akron Civic Theatre, we strive to be an active participant in the community we serve and a place where we are all welcome, treated equally, and can come together as one regardless of race, religion or beliefs. We stand together not just today, but every day with the black community and all others in the fight against racism, bigotry, hatred, and violence.

Through our Millennial Theatre Project and livevirtually platform we will be creating a performance piece constructed from interviews regarding the current climate that is affecting the black community in Akron and around the country. We work hard to respond to the community we serve and your voices are extremely important in helping us appropriately create this performance. Please complete this survey with your feedback.
