Location: 20 South Court Street, Athens
The College of Fine Arts at Ohio University, through the Athens Center for Film and Video, is honored to bring back the best movies it can to the historic Athena Cinema. Since 1915, the Athena Cinema has been one of the jewels of uptown Athens.
The vision is to maintain the Athena Cinema as the premiere art-house cinema in the region, showcasing the latest in independent and international film: movies that come from all over the world, from young artists and established auteurs; from quirky independent visionaries and masters of world cinema.
The Athena Cinema is your cinema, and it provides an intersection for all film lovers, film makers, artists, students, and occasional film goers to meet and engage with movies that make us laugh, cry, ponder, and question — movies that help us all to better know our world, our neighbors, and ourselves.
