Athena Cinema

The Athena opened its doors in 1915, and has played film continuously over the years, placing us among the oldest movie theaters in the nation. Today, The Athena Cinema is one of downtown Athens unique historic treasures. Our mission is to bring the finest independent film to Southeastern Ohio and create a shared space for dialogue.

The Athena Cinema is currently operating as a Virtual Cinema Hub, with streaming film rentals available for 3-day blocks upon rental.
