Cleveland Cinemas has just announced the titles for the first half of its 2017 Late Shift Series, a program dedicated to the nostalgic cult and camp cinema that we love and cherish even though it’s certainly not Oscar-worthy material. The series has been a fixture at the Cedar Lee since 2006.

All 2016 films will screen at the Cedar Lee the first Saturday of every month at 9:30 p.m. and midnight and on the first Sunday at 7 p.m. Alternately, the films will show at the Capitol Theatre on the third Saturday of the month at midnight.
