An ode to Rochester's last neighborhood theater. 

Located at the corner of Goodman and S. Clinton, the Cinema Theater has survived for 100 years and is the last and oldest neighborhood theater in Rochester, NY. 

"Do you know about our 75 cent refills?" 

Parker Allard, 6, peers over the ticket counter while her father buys tickets. 

In May 2014, the Cinema updated its film projection system to an all digital format. This update was possible only with community support through an ongoing Indiegogo campaign. 

"Do you like butter?"

"We live in the neighborhood and like to come down when they have a fun matinee."
