News About This Theater
- Jul 2, 2010 — Fourteen-screen megaplex opens in Palm Coast, FL
“I am not well acquainted with the Athens Theatre in DeLand, Florida. I have driven by it many times, but have not been inside. I do know that restoration efforts are going on, and shows take place there from time to time.”
The theater was built around 1922 and the name relates to DeLand’s founders' dreams of having their small city be the "Athens of the South." (DeLand, county seat of Volusia County, Florida, is home to Stetson University and is about 20 miles west of Daytona Beach).
The Athens Theatre was renovated in 2008, and reopened in early 2009.
