The Athena Theatre opened in 1915. By 1941, it was operated by the Schine Circuit. Eventually it was the only remaining movie house in the city of Athens, Ohio until recently, when the Athena Grand multiplex opened.
The theater reopened in February 2002 after a $2 million renovation paid for by Ohio University which bought the theater in 2001 for $600,000.
Its recent restoration has recaptured its 1930’s heyday, and the theater’s new programming is eclectic mixing independent, foreign, classic, and, occassionally, first-run commercial fare for the college town.
