The historic Pythias Theatre building is located in the heart of the Hocking Hills, a scenic wonderland on Ohio’s Appalachian foothills region that attracts nearly 3 million visitors each year.
The 660 seat theatre opened in 1926 to a capacity crowd who viewed “Jolly Tars” and “The Campus Flirt”. The venue served large roadshow and film presentations until the Chakeres Theatres Inc. chain purchased it and operated it as a movie theatre until the early 1990’s. The Pythians, then Mason’s called it home for their fraternal lodge meetings.
It was renovated in 2003, and in early 2010, it is occupied by two technology driven companies, and is offered ‘For Sale’.
Community leaders have organized the Chakeres Restoration Corporation as a 501 © (3) to participate in the restoration and operation of a community theatre/arts center.
