The Kon-Tiki Theatre was built in 1968 by the Samuel Levin family. It had a South Pacific decor which included giant conch shells for restroom sinks, illuminated Tiki faces on the facade, volcanic rock and abalone shells built into the walls. I believe it even had real Tiki torches on the sign in front of the theatre.
The theatre was operated by the Levin family until it became the Loews Salem Avenue Cinemas in the late-1980’s. The theatre closed for good in 1999 and sat vacant until January 4, 2005. The Levin family donated the theatre to the city of Trotwood, which in turn demolished it to make way for future developement.
