About the Akron Civic Theatre
The Akron Civic 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. In June 2001, the Akron Civic Theatre
underwent the most comprehensive restoration and expansion project in its history, whereby the theater was brought
up to modern performance and patron standards. The theater now attracts nearly 110,000 people annually for
nationally touring concerts, comedians, and family shows, as well as a wide variety of events featuring local and
regional artists. For more information visit www.akroncivic.com
