In recognition of a significant gift from Judge Mark Painter, we're pleased to announce that the screening room at the Garfield will be named the Mark P. Painter Theatre. More about Mark, here.
Many thanks to long-time supporter Gil Gray and his staff, whose Gray Photo Imaging has provided CWC with eye-catching signage and display graphics for many years.   

The Garfield would not yet be opening without a superlative effort by Pete Montgomery of CMC Properties. Pete, Kelly, Emily, Jessica, Dave and Shawn have been terrific to work with, investing time, energy and resources in helping us bring cinema back to downtown Cincinnati.

The just-released documentary DARK MONEY is a political thriller that examines the influence of untraceable corporate and big-donor money on our elections and elected officials. Americans of all political persuasions overwhelmingly opposed the SCOTUS Citizens United decision and you'll see what happened when folks in Montana decided to do something about "bought" politicians and the lack of transparency and disclosure.  

Tickets are $10 in advance for the film and discussion, $15 at the door. Student tix are $8 and $12, all available by calling (859) 957-FILM or online,
There will be four screenings over three days:
• Friday, August 17, 7:00 PM
• Saturday, August 18, 4:00 & 7:00 PM
• Sunday, August 19, 4:00 PM
