Lewis Street Playhouse

The Lewis Street Playhouse, first known as the Miller-Starr Opera House, was built in 1893 at 405 Lewis Street in Canton. The facility hosted traveling stage performances in the 1800’s and early-1900’s. It was remodeled in 1938 and functioned as the Canton Theatre (Movies).

After standing vacant since the early-1980’s, the Canton Area Arts Council began plans in 2005 to revitalize the facility, and work was completed on the beautiful Art Deco style building in 2008.

The 5,000-square foot space has been renovated to include stadium-style seating, state-of-the-art audio system, updated Art-Deco inspired decor and concession stand. It is also home to Canton Festival Theatre.

The theatre plays subrun movies and is closed during July and resumes showing on week ends in late-August.

Opened as a movie theater in 1939, which must be when the remodel to art deco happened.
