movie theater

Today when Greater Cincinnati movie-goers want to catch a feature film they can head to one of the local multiplexes, a smaller art-house theater or even an IMAX. Or they can just stream a movie to their flat-screen TV or smart device. But there was a time when seeing a movie in Cincinnati meant a trip to the Albee, the Shubert, or one of the other dozen-plus theaters downtown, or to one of the suburban movie houses like the Covedale, the Mount Lookout Cinema, or the 20th Century in Oakley.

  Summer movies tend to come on least the trailers and hype usually shout “blockbuster.” But what can we expect from the films being released this summer? And what is the ultimate summer movie experience: hitting an IMAX; piling the family in the car and finding one of the few drive-ins still in operation; being able to enjoy dinner during the show; or will any multiplex do? Contributing Film Editor for Cincinnati CityBeat and Dayton CityPaper, tt stern-enzi, and WVXU Entertainment Contributor Larry Thomas take a look at what’'s in store for movie-goers this summer.
