The Lake Theatre is located in downtown Barberton, Ohio and opened May 6, 1938. It’s most unique feature was the huge well in the basement that pumped ice cold water through coils to help the Westinghouse air conditioning to cool the air in the summer. The water was then returned to the ground with another well drilled deep into the salt mines below the surface. The marquee’s neon is the State of Ohio’s colors, blue and gold.
Seating originally was about 900 seats. It closed in the 1980’s with many others, but the city purchased the property and leased it to a company in Cleveland who turned it into a multiplex by adding to the building. It’s main competition was the Park Theatre across the street who also ran second-run features. The Park is now a children’s theatre.
