About The Garfield

Welcome to the Garfield Theatre

During the pandemic, do you support restaurants via carry-out orders?
Do you support local retailers and grocery stores with online/pick-up orders?

Think of our Virtual Cinema as your take-out menu for good movies – with free delivery!!

Hard times have hit all of us. Since the theatre closed last March, to keep the dream alive CWC has been paying thousands of dollars each month – lease payments, utilities, insurance, Internet, email and administrative expense.

You can help – rent the online films we offer, give them as gifts to others, actively spread the word. Online film rental prices are very reasonable, $5, $10, $12, per household, of which we receive a portion. While you may spend money on the big guys – Netflix, HBO+, Amazon, Disney+, Hulu – please take a look at our virtual lineup and BUY LOCAL.

We’re all volunteer. We’ve supported the local film community for many years by keeping ticket and concession prices low, by programming high-quality films that would otherwise bypass this market. Your support can help keep independent art house cinema alive in Cincinnati.

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’s 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 monthly in the Mark Painter Screening Room.

At the Garfield, we are proud to continue the twenty-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.
