Best Movie Theater 

Cedar Lee

The Cedar Lee is such a slam dunk winner every year that having a vote seems almost superfluous. The eastside "indie" theater is the state's go-to destination for award-season fare, interesting foreign films and emerging indie directors. It's also the birthplace of the Cleveland International Film Festival ­— thanks Jonathan Forman! — and monthly midnight cult classics. With cinematic programming as diverse as the clientele, the Cedar Lee is a true Cleveland experience. Plus, Cleveland Heights has a bounty of food and drink options, which makes it an ideal venue for a dinner-and-a-movie date.
