Our Story


The Quaker Cinema is dedicated to bringing our community 1st Run movies at an affordable price. Our theater has a rich history of providing local entertainment for more than seven decades. The Quaker Cinema was the first theater built exclusively for movies in Tuscarawas County. Originally, one massive screen in a 800+ seat auditorium made the headlines on our opening day which was November 1st, 1940. Later, during the 1980's, the Quaker Cinema was converted into a two screen theater to provide more than one movie option. 

Come and join us. Bring the whole family, and all your friends, for a Night at the Quaker Cinema!
