About
First opening its doors on Christmas Day 1925 as an 1,100 seat, single-screen theater, the Cedar Lee Theatre was transformed into a twin-screen theater in 1983 to compete with the increasing number of multiplexes and to meet the demand to play an ever growing number of specialty films. Two Hollywood-style screening rooms were added in 1991 - allowing guests to the theater to enjoy truly specialized films. Finally in 1994 two modern stadium-style theaters were added to bring the current screen count to six. For more than three decades the words "Cedar Lee Theatre" and "specialty film" have been synonymous in Cleveland. Ushering in an era when specialty film would transcend art-house appeal, and coupled with its unique concession stand the first to offer baked goods, sandwiches, specialty coffee drinks, and imported beer and wine the Cedar Lee Theatre continues to be the movie theater of choice for many Greater Clevelanders.

This is a great place for a movie, when one can go again. I have seen lots of terrific movies here as they show the good stuff. It's comfortable and old fashioned.

Cedar and Lee is our go to “date night” spot. Always a great variety of contemporary movies. Good and polite crowd. Convenient parking and easy walk to dinner at Lopez, coffee at Phoenix, are great soups and sandwiches at Stone Oven.

We have been attending the Cedar Lee Theatre for many years and have been pleased because they show "art" movies that are not shown in other Cleveland theaters. We prefer the two larger theatres in the Cedar Lee as opposed to the smaller ones there.

This unique theater offers alcoholic beverages and a nice array of snacks. The theaters are small and quaint as is the screen which sometimes is a bit off putting. Love the movie choices.

If you live in the greater Cleveland area and love film, you'll definitely want to put the Cedar Lee on your list of places to go. Although you'll find some box office smash films here, the Cedar Lee also picks up amazing documentaries and independent films. A nice concession stand provides everything you need for an enjoyable movie experience.

They have for a long time shown the best movies here. It's a comfy theater although a bit chopped up. All around are cafes and restaurants with good food and coffee.

Great selection of films, many of which will never make it to other area theaters. It is a place to meet up with other like-minded people and enjoy an engrossing movie experience. Be prepared to use stairs, if you are parking a car - or, you can drop off those with movement challenges right in front of the theater in a convenient drop off zone.

The Cedar Lee has all the movies I want to see, but they haven't been able to install comfortable seats or modern anything. We still go, because there's no real alternative in the area. But a guy can dream.

The small theaters are enjoyable and intimate. The movies can be independent or big box office so lots to choose from. I enjoy the fact we can enjoy an alcohol beverage and the staff is always courteous.

This was one theater in the 1940’s and now it’s 6. Shows art films, special performances,midnight horror films. Old fashioned but clean and friendly. There is ALWAYS something there to see. Nice bar with pastries and other goodies.
I have been going there since 1942. What more can you say ?
