About Our Theaters:

Originally opened in 1915, the Athena’s roots are in vaudeville theater. One of the oldest theaters in Ohio, today the theater retains a restored, vintage Art Deco style.

Our three theaters hold large audiences. We have two downstairs venues that feature 160 seats. Our spacious, stadium-style  upstairs theater holds 200 + audience members. Our upstairs theater also has swing arm desks and a stage that can be used as a classroom.

The three theaters are also fully wheelchair accessible.

We’re currently in the process of transitioning to digital equipment, but for vintage film lovers, we’ll always retain the ability to show classic 35mm film.
