For nearly thirty years, the Covedale enjoyed a treasured place in the hearts of Cincinnati movie-goers as one of the last great, full-sized neighborhood movie palaces.
In 2001, a campaign to save the Covedale and revive it as the Center for the Performing Arts began to catch fire. In only two short months a small army of volunteers, contractors, and construction experts removed the dividing walls and movie screens, redesigned the seating, built a stage and sets, installed technical equipment and brought the Covedale back to life.
The Covedale has recently again undergone an amazing transformation. They've added seats to bring capacity to nearly 400, upgraded all systems and continue to restore the "Miracle on Glenway" to a professional theatre and performing arts center.
