Ciné enriches the quality of life in Athens GA by presenting film and arts that inspire, educate and build community.
We treasure the experience of screening films in a unique community setting.
The restored historic venue—an abandoned tire recapping plant now transformed into a community hub that houses cinemas, a bar, and an event space—is the only independently operated, mission driven, non-profit, community-based art house movie theatre in the region.
Ciné plays a key role in the cultural landscape of downtown Athens, providing the unique opportunity to share the vitality of a community movie-going experience in a state-of-the-art setting, without the commercial distractions of the multiplex.
As a development anchor on West Hancock Avenue, Ciné has contributed to the economic growth of downtown Athens. Ciné brings people downtown, preventing the multiplex from leading the vital flow of patrons away from Athens.
