The Cedar Lee is the indispensible favorite of Northeast Ohio's art, foreign and indie-movie crowd. – The Scene
Originally opened in 1926 as a single-screen silent-film palace, the venue has undergone many modifications over the years but has maintained its flavor. This is where informed viewers go to see prominent non-mainstream films.
That means award-winning documentaries, Sundance indies, revivals and just about anything with subtitles picked up by distribs like Miramax or Sony Pictures Classics. And the Cedar Lee is the only place in town to catch the Saturday midnight "Rocky Horror."
Behind the Scenes
The Cedar Lee's appeal is such that folks come from all over to catch the likes of movies no multiplex will touch?even West siders make the trek to Cleveland Heights for what this place offers.
Long Live the Cedar Lee – After the Mayfield's sad demise, the Cedar Lee took on the mantle as Cleveland (and northern Ohio's) venue of choice for non-multiplex flicks -- and thank goodness for that. Conveniently located, it's a godsend to those of us who aren't at Oberlin.
