The Village Theatre was originally built as a single screen theatre and opened on July 16, 1964 with George Hamilton in “Act One”. It was later twinned to better serve the community with more movies. Its last owner was TBE Theatres, which also owned the Fairlawn Theatre (now closed), the Linda Theatre, Akron which is still open, and the historic Highland Theatre in Akron.

For many of its last years it was a ‘dollar’ house, that put many high school and college students through school. A few of its longest running movies included “The Sound of Music” and “Crocodile Dundee”.

The Village Twin Theatre was closed in the 1990’s, and has been replaced by a Rite Aid and strip mall.

A picture of the theater’s exterior sign as of 1989 can be seen here. The theater was opened by National General and then operated by Mann Theaters before TBE.
