About The Garfield
Welcome to the Garfield Theatre
The last of twenty-eight cinemas that once operated in downtown Cincinnati closed over twenty years ago. Now, as the urban area gains new residents and popularity as a destination, it is time for a neighborhood cinema and event venue!
To meet renewed demand, in 2018 Cincinnati World Cinema renovated a dormant fifty-year-old theatre – the last cinema to close and now the first to reopen – naming it The Garfield Theatre.
Our large screen, new laser projector and new sound system compliment an intimate, comfy space with 163 seats. You will find us at 719 Race Street, 45202, near the corner of Race and Garfield Place in downtown Cincinnati.

Operated by volunteers who care deeply about cinema, CWC curates several films each month in the Mark Painter Screening Room.
At the Garfield, we are proud to continue the nineteen-year CWC tradition of offering high-quality documentaries, shorts, narrative fiction, foreign language titles, and specialty programs including festivals and classics – focusing on important films that normally bypass Cincinnati.
Other uses for the Garfield include event hosting for area filmmakers and festivals, community groups, public forums and occasional live performances.
