Formed in 2014 from a love of cinema and community, The Nightlight strives to build up those elements together. Open nightly, we provide a classy nightspot to enjoy the cinematic art-form with a thoughtful community. Every night is an opportunity to explore a new world or idea, sip a delectable drink, and run into friends new and old. We warmly welcome you to The Nightlight Cinema.
The Nightlight Cinema is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit movie theater dedicated to advancing cinema and community in tandem. We accept tax-deductible donations to advance our mission.
The Nightlight Cinema is located at 30 North High Street in downtown Akron. It opened on July 1, 2014 thanks to key grants from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and GAR Foundation.
