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.

Brought my wife and mom here for "Arsenic and Old Lace". It was a great play, but this review will be about the theater itself. Athens was build in the 1920's I think. Over the years it was "improved" until it was a total eyesore....More

We all enjoyed the Blend acapella group's singing 50's and 60's music very much. Sorry to learn that the group, after 12 1/2 years, is disbanding to pursue other opportunities. Theater accommodations were excellent!
