Happy 95th birthday to the me! We first opened on this day in 1929!

Originally opened as Loew’s Akron, the 3,000-seat Akron Civic was built as part of film exhibitor Marcus Loew's extensive theatre chain.

Architect John Eberson designed the theatre in his trademark Atmospheric style, featuring a Moorish Garden theme. The walls seem to enclose the courtyard of a fanciful
palace, while a myriad of openings display classical statues and urns. Overhead, stars twinkle and clouds drift by.

In 2002, the auditorium was renovated and restored to its original glory by EverGreene Architectural Arts. During the Covic-19 pandemic, the theatre's Grand Lobby followed suit with an $8.5 million restoration.

The Akron Civic was originally home to a pair of live macaws who would greet patrons in the Grand Lobby. Loretta the Parrot still wathces over the Grand Lobby, albeit now in taxidermy form.
