By Rich Heldenfels Published: July 31, 2013

The official word, with schedule: Cinema at the Square kicks off this Thursday in PlayhouseSquare’s historic Palace Theatre for its 16th summer with fifteen of Hollywood’s most iconic hits making their return to the BIG screen, August 1-18. The Series’ star-studded lineup features the likes of Sean Connery, Molly Ringwald, Angela Lansbury, Charlton Heston, Jimmy Stewart and many more of Cinema’s elite – Tickets are on sale now for just $5!


Audiences are treated to a classic movie-going experience with nostalgic pre-show organ recitals on our one-of-a-kind restored 1927 Kimball organ; retro short films and cartoons before each screening; a fabulous snack bar including popcorn, candy, adult beverages and more.
