 Overview
 Description
"...when I was in High School up in Stow, Ohio (near Akron), my friends and I used to travel to the Falls Theater in Cuyahoga Falls almost every Friday and Saturday night to see Rocky Horror Picture Show. It was a dilapidated, second-run movie house located in an old pedestrian mall right on top of the Cuyahoga river. Some of my people actually did the floor show in front of the screen, but my best friend Mike Scafidi and I specialized in making up new lines. I had some of the best (and some of the worst) times of my life watching that scratched-up print with a dodgy soundtrack, soaked to the bone and covered in confetti and toast crumbs. We always prayed that no one would take the opportunity to light our newspaper umbrellas with their Bics during 'There's a Light'. "

     History
    "At the Saturday matinee at the (Cuyahoga) Falls theater, 10¢ would buy you a double feature, a news reel, a cartoon, The Lone Ranger, and a science fiction serial, plus a Nestle’s Crunch Bar on the way out the door!"
     Media Coverage
    "Yankulov Electric Service claimed it had done work on the old Falls Theater, but was never paid after the city took over the property from the former owner. The company was seeking $125,000 for the work, plus 10 percent interest from Feb. 14, 2000 and other costs, according to court records. However, the city, according to court filings, stated it had never hired Yankulov for the work and did not owe the company money."

     Future Plans
    This will most likely be renovated and re-opened as an office complex.
