science teacher from Edison Tech lives across from the theater and has struggled to keep it going but the motivating force for her is her love of movies and the neighborhood. In the Fall of 2005, it looked as if the Cinema had shown it’s last movie. In the spirit of community partnership, a number of committed individuals and companies led by Highland Park Neighborhood resident Bill Wynkoop stepped in and helped keep its doors open. The Friends of the Cinema is still operating  It’s always a pleasure at the Cinema where you can enjoy a double feature for $5.00 and concessions can be had at a modest price. Did you know the cinema can be rented for birthdays, special events , etc.? They have a digital projector which can project DVDs with surround sound or be connected to the internet. A couple recently was engaged via a special video the future groom created. And of course there’s always “Princess” the theater cat who may come and sit next to you to share a movie. Support the Cinema, Rochester’s Oldest still operating theater.
