The Athens Theatre is a classic American theatre which was once the centerpiece of DeLand and is a beautiful example of Italian Renaissance architecture. It was designed by Murray King, a prominent Orlando architect in 1921 and opened in January of 1922. Henry DeLand, the founder of Deland, wanted to create a city that would be the “Athens of Florida” and that’s how it got its name. It was handcrafted mostly by local workers and is now almost 100 years old.
