The Falls Theater was built circa 1925. In 1962, this theater was converted to a Cinerama theater. Seating was reduced from 1,000 to approximately 630 seats at that time. As of 2004 the building was still standing. In the summer of 2016 plans were announced to convert the theatres into a micro-brewery.

I have posted a scan of the display ad for 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. The name of the theatre is the LOEW’S NEW FALLS.

Now, the name of this theatre can be changed.

I have started the negotiation process with the city and some investors.. My plan is to renovate and reopen her with a nice restaurant inside(dinner and a movie). My inspiration for this comes from The Commodore Theater in Portsmouth Va. I will post my progress.

When it finally closed it shut down as The Falls Theater. I don’t think Lowe’s New Falls Theater ever took as the name. All the local’s that remember still call it The Falls Theater.

Thank you… If all goes well i should be ready to open later this year or early next year!

I attended the Falls Theater from ‘83-'91 for screenings of Rocky Horror. Ah, the good old days. I wish you the best of luck, hifiman!

The NRHP nomination form for the Moreland Theatre in Cleveland lists the Falls Theatre in Cuyahoga Falls as one of five theaters designed by the Moreland’s architects, Sigmund Braverman and Kurt Havermaet.

From “The Cuyahoga Falls News-Press. July 3, 2016

On June 26, the Ohio Development Services Agency awarded $27.8 million in Ohio Historic Preservation Tax Credits to 26 applicants to rehabilitate 39 historic buildings, including the Falls Theater. The Falls Theater, at 2218-2220 Front St., was approved for a $249,999 tax credit. The total estimated cost of the project is $1.27 million.

The historic Falls Theater space has two storefronts and four apartments on the second floor that have been empty for more than a decade, according to a news release from the Ohio Development Services Agency. Tax credits will help transform the theater space into a microbrewery and restaurant. The commercial and apartment spaces will be renewed for their original intent. The project is part of a newly revitalized Front Street.
