The Cedar Lee in an earlier era, (before the relocation of Parnell's).

After a two-year pandemic hiatus, Cleveland Cinemas' beloved "Late Shift" film series will return Saturday June 4 with a showing of Major League at the Cedar Lee.

Historically a monthly midnight screening of cult classics, the Late Shift films will now be screened at 10 p.m. the first Saturday of every month at the Cedar Lee through the end of the year.  The Rocky Horror Picture Show will continue to screen the first Saturday of every month at 9:30.

“Watching a movie with an audience is an experience that can’t be replicated at home,” said Jon Forman, President of Cleveland Cinemas, in a statement earlier this month. “Seeing a film you love with other fans who love it as much as you heightens everyone’s enjoyment. The films in the Late Shift have proven to be crowd pleasers that people love to watch again and again.”
