The Athena Cinema is happy provide an alternate venue to spend time with your loved ones by hosting special screenings on OU Family Weekends. We often show audience favorites on these weekends. If the weather is not perfect for a game or you are looking for some family fun the bar scene doesn’t offer, come to one of the oldest theaters in Ohio to catch a movie on the big screen. Whether you want to take Dad to see ANIMAL HOUSE or the whole family to MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, we offer something for everyone.
