Remember it well. John Waters films, Hitchcock restored films, Warner Brothers Cartoons Film Festivals, even old re-released westerns.

I miss the Real Movies so much. Although I lived in rural Indiana, I frequently drove to Cincinnati to see films. Real Movies was my first introduction to many of my favorite directors – Jarman, Araki, Almodovar – all seen for the first time there. So many films don’t come here now and even the “art” houses here show mainstream films to stay in business. So sad. Thank goodness for streaming services, but it’s still not the same as sitting in a dark theatre engulfed in the film.

This is our lone survivor of all the downtown movie theaters, and it has been converted to a live venue. That said, I’m glad it has been saved for Shakespeare fans!

There has been a recent newspaper article saying that the Shakespeare Th. would like to move to larger quarters due to their good attendance. Now I supposed there will be a fund raising event mode to hopefully accomplish that feat. However, they will stay put for the present time.

As far as I know the theatre still has its original rocking chair seats. It just finished an extended run of a three actor play which involved Sherlock Holmes.

Granted, because of its new name perhaps don’t recognize it as the Place or The Movies, but I’m surprised that years after my submission, no one has any comments about this longtime Cincinnati favorite.
