CLEVELAND - "Cinema at the Square" is back at Playhouse Square for its 15th year of bringing classic films on a big screen at the Palace Theater.
The series kicked off on August 2 with the "West Side Story." Thursday night at 7:30 p.m., the movie "Rear Window" will be shown. All of the movies are viewed on the largest non-IMAX screen in Ohio, inside the historic theater. In addition, the series features nostalgic pre-show organ recitals on a 1927 Kimball organ, retro short films and cartoons before each screening.
Marketing and Public Relations Manager Jeannie Emser explained why the experience is so special.
"The cinema features classic movies you'll never see in a cineplex," she explained. She likened "Cinema at the Square" to the kind of experience your parents, or grandparents, may have had when visiting the movie theater in the 1920's.
Some of the other upcoming classic films in the series include "Rebel Without A Cause," "Casablanca," "Some Like It Hot," and "Mary Poppins."
The prices are vintage as well. General adult admission is only $5 per film. Students, seniors and children under 12 years old are admitted for $4 per ticket. Tickets are available at the PlayhouseSquare Box Office or online at PlayhouseSquare.org.
