News About This Theater
The Clifton Opera House opened in Clifton, a district of Cincinnati, Ohio in 1911 and became the Clifton Theatre screening movies by 1915. On December 24, 1939 it was renamed Esquire Theatre. It became an art house in the 1960’s. Closing in 1983 due to competition from new multiplexes, it was scheduled to become a Wendy’s fast-food restaurant in 1984.
However, the planned conversion was blocked over a six year period by neighborhood advocates who eventually helped reopen the theater on April 20, 1990 as a 400-seat triplex. Around 1999, the theater was remodeled again and now houses six auditoriums.
