Project Description

​The Historic Apollo Theatre is an iconic landmark, single screen movie house which had fallen into despair. Sponsored by Oberlin College, the rehabilitation and renovation was made possible by an allocation of NMTCs by DVCI as well as Historic Tax Credits. The public will have access to first run commercial movies at half the price of nearby multiplexes. The College moved its Cinema school to the site with a storefront entrance to the Apollo Outreach Initiative Center. This Center includes a post-production lab, screening space for student films, and an audio recording and mixing studio. The Cinema and Media Studies Department not only provides education at the college level, but also founded the Apollo Outreach Initiative which brings film education to students in all grades in the Oberlin Public School system.
