Overview
More
The Athens Theatre is a fully restored historic theatre. Once the centerpiece of DeLand, this red-bricked beauty is a jewel of Italian Renaissance architecture. This historic theatre was designed in 1921 by prominent Orlando architect Murray S. King and first opened its doors on January 6th, 1922. Above the stage's proscenium arch is an original 1920's Grecian Freeze by artist Samuel Judson Stone. Each year the Athens Theatre presents six large theatrical productions by the Athens Theatre Company & Youth Academy, numerous concerts, community events, and gatherings.

Like stepping back in time watching live theater in quaint local establishment. Everything about it was an experience, one we're looking forward to having again when we go see The Wedding Singer! Don't miss an opportunity to see a show here, you won't regret it!

There is a parking lot in front of the theater. Not directly in front, towards the right if you are standing in front of the theater facing the road. Free parking.

There is no dress code. Some people dress up but some wear sundresses, shorts or jeans.
