Always enjoy performances at this venue. It tends to be a bit crowded upon initial entry but “opens up” nicely as you approach seating area

I love the Akron Civic Theatre! It is has great entertainment of many venues and always delivers quality! It is full of history and simply beautiful throughout! The theatre is modeled after a castle with many carvings all around. It was originally built in 1929...More
