We are a entertainment facility in Downtown Akron, Ohio that caters to all types of entertainment from local and regionaly produced entertainment to national and international touring productions

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.

This is a very exciting time for us at the Civic. We are kicking off our Public Phase of our Capital Campaign and we are also celebrating our 90th Anniversary at the same time and YOU are invited! Tickets are required and can be attained at The Akron Civic Box Office, Wayside Furniture, and all Akron Nervous Dog Coffee Bars starting Monday (3/25).
We will be serving up free cake, beverages, and entertainment with magician Bill Bishop, singer Jeff Klemm, Pick - Up Stix Stilt Walkers, and the Mighty Wurlitzer. The doors will open at 1:30 PM for the festivities and at 2:30 PM we will be showing the classic movie – “Singin’ In the Rain” on our big screen.

We have Suzanne Westenhoefer in the building tonight! (3/22/19)
Enjoy this intimate evening of comedy at The Club @ the Civic!
Tickets available at the door!
