Playhouse Square Announces Return of Cinema at the Square Presented by Medical Mutual

Lights, camera, action! It’s time to grab some popcorn and take your seat as Cinema at the Square presented by Medical Mutual makes its return to Playhouse Square this summer. The beloved film series allows guests to enjoy some of their favorite films on a big screen amidst the beauty of the historic Connor Palace -- embracing the nostalgia of the 1950s and 1960s when the venue was one of the premier movie theaters in Downtown Cleveland. Screenings feature classic movie theater concessions along with music on Playhouse Square’s restored 1928 Kimball organ.
