The Parkland Theatre has a long history and dates back to the period before the advent of motion pictures. The theatre was built as a vaudeville house in 1881 and was converted to a silent movie house in the 1920's. Remnants of those vaudeville days remain. The theatre had a stage with trap doors which are used for live performances on occasion. The Parkland is the oldest operating movie house in Cincinnati.

Ed Miller bought the historic Parkland Theatre in 1997. Over the last few years, many renovations have taken place including concession expansion (including HOT foods!), painting of the building, restoring the marquee, installing state of the art reclining leather seats, upgrading the movie equipment and much more.

In 2015, the historic Parkland Theatre commenced as a “First Run” Theatre. As family friendly movies are released, The Parkland Theatre will be able to play them immediately – not having to wait weeks when the films become available as a sub run. We will continue to have free movies and classical movies from time to time.

Because of Ed's Catholic faith, the Parkland Theatre does not show "R" rated movies. The Mission of the Parkland Theatre is to "provide the community with family oriented entertainment at an affordable cost and exceptional value".

The Parkland Theatre along with playing the “current family friendly movies”, shows religious movies every few months. These films entertain and educate Christians with true story movies. Some of the films shown are: The 13th Day (Story of Fatima), For Greater Glory (Cristio’s), Father Bosco, Padre Pio, and more. Please sign up on the “Email Signup” tab to be notified weekly of our schedule.

Also, The Parkland Theatre has Catholic Priests present LIVE presentations on the doctrine of the Faith as a free event! Father speaks while the PowerPoint presentation displays on the big screen. Come learn the faith while hearing Father speak, watching the live presentation on the screen and Father at the podium, and learning in comfortable chairs and enjoying popcorn!
