Originally opened in 1939 as a 700-seat single screen theatre. This theatre was closed, renovated, and reopened as a 3-screen art house theatre in the late-1990’s. In 2013 two additional screens were built at the rear.

This theater seems to have an English-medieval theme.

I went to see “March of the Penguins” there last fall. It is a small theater, smaller than it appears from the outside. The snack bar is tiny too. It’s there right when you walk in, so that ought to attract sales! The screen size is decent, and the seats are kinda squished together. Let me tell you now- I think “March of the Penguins” would be overwhelming in IMAX! The catch? I went with my sister’s stuffed penguin, Konica bowtie and all! I hope you all had a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year’s Eve. Stay tuned!

The original Mariemont Theater was designed by F&Y Building Services out of Columbus,Ohio,it was erected in 1938 and seated 800 fannies.he modeof the facade is English Tudor to fit with the surrounding village. Today of course the same theater is a three screener.

On going planning and negotiations for Mariemont Cinema to add two more screens for a total of 5. Current holdup being more parking spaces will have to be created before city approval will be granted. Stay tuned.

Based on my (admittedly few and long ago) memories, that just seems SO out of scale for the size of the theater and its lovely surroundings.

(I have nice memories of visiting Cincinnati in the late 60s and early 70s, and being taken here with family to see “Cactus Flower”, “If It’s Tuesday This Must Be Belgium”, and I think “French Connection”.)

Mariemont now has a total of 5 screens by expanding into the parking lot behind this cinema. Went to see ,“Saving Mr. Banks”, which I enjoyed very much.
