The Akron Civic Theatre has long been 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. The Civic is also 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. We are honored to have the inaugural Burning River Film Festival at this historic venue.
