“Well-Deserved Historic Preservation”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We have seen several plays and concerts at the Athens since the restoration. It is an awesome venue! The seats are comfortable, the restoration is impressive, and the charm is amazing! You MUST check out an event here. It is well worth it!!!

“Small town charm”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Athens Theater has small town charm. Endearingly small, with good sight lines. It is comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful. A short walk away are many charming and affordable restaurants with sidewalk tables - great for dinner before the theater or a snack after the show.

“History well-preserved”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Before it reopened its doors a few years ago, Athens Theater is rich with history. It is know to provide entertainment--vaudeville, movies, tickets cost only 10 cents (I bet that was a great deal back then). And now Athens is back--properly restored to its former glory. Once you step inside the theater, you now discover what Athens looked like back in the old days. It's kinda like a kid going to a theme park for the first time and is amazed of everything you see.

Check the local website for exciting shows, movie showings, live shows and more. When you get to the Athens Theater in DeLand, Florida, you will be bedazzled...

Nice venue. The play was well presented.---good cast, acting and staging. I would definitely go again with friends. The area is great for before and after theater dining.
