Akron, OH: Nightlight Cinema Now Open

Posted on Wednesday, July 2, 2014 3:47 PM

The Nightlight Cinema in Akron, Ohio opened to the public yesterday, July 1, 2014. Billing itself as an independent cinema, the theater is currently playing the Jim Jarmusch (an Akron native) drama Only Lovers Left Alive, and has movies such as Night Moves and the Beatles documentary A Hard Day's Night on its upcoming schedule.

An article published recently by the West Side Leader mentions that the new theater will seat 50 people and has a 16-foot-wide screen with an eight speaker surround system. It also gets a description of the theater right from the source:

“The Nightlight is a micro cinema,” said Robert Lucas, director of communications for Akron Film+Pixel. “Because of the size and because of the population of Akron, we can show movies that normally wouldn’t get huge audiences. We are showing independent films, foreign films, revival films and even some bigger films, like in the first week we will show ‘A Hard Day’s Night.’ The goal is to show movies that do not normally show in Akron.”

Lucas said the theater will be open six days a week, Tuesdays through Sundays.

“We will have two showings each day, and every once in a while we will have a midnight movie. We already have a couple of those planned,” he said. “The theater is part of Akron Film+Pixel, which used to be the Akron Film Festival. The goal was to have a place of our own, where we could pretty much show whatever we want to, six days a week. Generally, the showings will start at 6 or 6:30 p.m., and we’ll have a second showing at 9-ish, depending on the length of the movie.”
