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.

Three community-centric Cincinnati theaters – all locally owned and managed, serving local and national beer, premium wines, and a mix of the best indie and commercial films. These efforts led to the Esquire receiving recognition from USA Today and CityBeat, which named it Cincinnati's "Best Movie Theatre" for the past seven years. At the Esquire, guests stop by for a diverse lineup of independent features, occasional live musical performances, and special events, including Q & A sessions. During films, guests top off their acclaimed popcorn with real butter.
The Mariemont Theatre is historic in its own right, dating back more than 75 years, also showing today's indie gems. The Kenwood Theatre, on the other hand, changes up the movie-going experience by serving sushi during mainstream flicks. Movie-goers can also dine on Frieda's Desserts and Graeter's Ice Cream as they kick back in the digital state-of-the-art contemporary theater.

With 10 national championships to their name and another 76 conference titles to boot, the Cincinnati Bearcats boast more than century of athletic tradition. Though the student athletes thrive in many different sports, the basketball program—which won back-to-back NCAA Championships in 1961 and 1962—is the school's crown jewel. Before embarking on a professional career that earned him a spot among the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History, The Big O cut his hard-court skills for the Bearcats, averaging a staggering 33.8 points per game in his three years at UC. In more recent years, the Bearcats football team has enjoyed its own run as a true contender, earning bowl berths in 2009, 2011, and 2012. In both 2011 and 2012, the squad pounced on their postseason opponents, taking home glittering trophies to use as tackling dummies in training camp.
