you will find the Carnegie Arts Center, arguably the best non-commercial film venue in the Tri-State area.
Built in 1904 as a Carnegie Library and renovated in 2006, the multi-purpose building houses the Carnegie Galleries, the beautiful Otto Budig Theatre and the Eva G. Farris Education Center.
Holding 460 for live performances, theatre seating is limited to 350 for cinema, providing excellent sightlines from the main floor and center balcony. The renovation included comfortable seating with generous leg room, and a new sound system. Cincinnati World Cinema provides a high-resolution wide-screen digital projector for cinema screenings in high definition.
For film events, amenities include a pre-film social hour and cash bar in the main gallery, adjacent to the theatre, often including catered a-la-carte food offerings. The Carnegie features ample free parking, a rarity with urban venues.
Those driving across the Roebling Suspension Bridge have an easy trip -- the bridge dumps into Scott Blvd. (one-way South) and the Carnegie, spanning the block between Scott and Greenup at Robbins Street, is only minutes away. The return is just as easy -- up Greenup Street (one-way North) directly to the Suspension Bridge. Couldn't be more simple or convenient!
People living downtown or otherwise inclined to use public transportation can take the Southbank Shuttle from Downtown Cincinnati into Covington and then walk or ride TANK to the theatre.
