News About This Theater

Loews Cedar Center

The Fox Cedar Center theatre opened on August 6, 1968, at the Cedar Center Plaza in University Heights. Loews took over the theatre in the mid-1970’s, twinned it, and operated it until it was closed on August 28, 1997. The theatre space was vacant for several years and was later demolished.

When This is Cinerama played this theater it was still under Mann theaters. National General Theaters were sold to Mann a few years after the Cedar Center was open. The theater played 3 hard tickets movies before Lowes bought the theater. It played these films in 70mm. Other films that played in 70mm was a rerun of the Sound of Music and 2001 A Space Odessey. Lowes ran this theater into the ground.

I think one of those premiere 70mm runs was that of the laughable 1969 production of “Paint Your Wagon” with Clint Eastwood, Lee Marvin, and Jean Seberg; I know that is where I saw it.

I remember my Grandfather taking me to see “Friday the Thirteenth in 3D” at this theatre. Cool Guy huh? This theatre, and the entire plaza, is now torn down and gone.

Lived in Cleveland 1968 to 1972 and I remember this as being a very nice, modern single-screen suburban theater. Not positive, but I think they ran “2001” following the initial engagement downtown, and I’m pretty sure this is where “A Clockwork Orange” and “Anne of a Thousand Days” and some of the other major films opened on the east side.

Adding to the experience of seeing a film here was the Cedar Center (shopping center) and surrounding area, a decent destination in itself, boasting some informal but very nice places to eat such as Solomon’s (deli) and the Aurora Restaurant which had moved to the area from University Circle.

This can be marked as demolished. The whole plaza, both sides of Cedar, has been torn down and rebuilt at some point, so the original theater building is long gone.

Final day of business was 8/28/1997 and the last movies shown were Picture Pefect, Event Horizon, and How To Be A Player.
