Even massive TVs or wall-sized smartphones just can't replicate the experience of watching a movie on the silver screen. That being said, modern first-run theaters can put a damper on a family night out with exorbitant ticket and concession prices. Like time-traveling back to the golden days of affordable cinema, The Screens at Cincinnati Mall gives moviegoers all of the first-run perks?pristine projection, huge screens, crisp digital sound, and high-backed rocking seats?without siphoning wallets. With eight auditoriums, The Screens delivers moviegoing memories 365 days a year with a constant rotation of second-run blockbusters, including kids' films, horror flicks, action-adventures, rom-coms, and com-roms (movies about computers that hate each other at first, then fall in love). All the while, the concession stand keeps appetites at bay with a wealth of theater staples, including popcorn, nachos, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, pretzels, sodas, and healthy fruit juices.
