Topping the Bill

(Kristina Deckert)

Oberlin's historic Apollo Theatre has been a venue of entertainment for nearly 100 years, predating the rise of talking films.

This fall, the beloved landmark will reopen following a yearlong renovation to restore much of its Art Deco glory while integrating space for the cinema studies department and its community education project, the Apollo Outreach Initiative.
