Ready to listen to the music? In partnership with the Athens Community Arts and Music Festival we bring you The Triplets of Belleville as the final movie in our Beat the Heat summer movie series. When her grandson is kidnapped during the Tour de France, Madame Souza and her beloved pooch Bruno team up with the Belleville Sisters–an aged song-and-dance team from the days of Fred Astaire–to rescue him.
Athena Cinema of Ohio University’s College of Fine Arts will partner with Ohio University, Athens Area Chamber of Commerce, Athens County Children Services, Athens Public Libraries and Ohio University Credit Union to present the Athena Cinema 7th Annual Beat the Heat $2 Days Film Series and Fundraiser for Southeast Ohio Youth Mentoring! Every year, the summer series showcases children’s and family-friendly films at a discounted admission. Get out of the heat and come enjoy the cool air conditioning, delicious concessions, fun prizes, and free books at every showing!
To benefit Southeast Ohio Youth Mentoring (formerly Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Athens County), the price of admission to these screenings is a suggested minimum donation of $2 per ticket.
