The only way to appreciate the neighborhood is to explore it on foot. Take in the sights, sounds, and smells and you’ll fall in love with the energy and vibe of the city.

This historic Cedar-Lee Theatre opened on Christmas Day 1925 as a single-screen theater that seated more than a thousand people. It was converted into a twin-screen theater in 1983 to meet the demand to play a growing number of specialty films. Two screening rooms were added in 1991, and in 1994 two modern stadium-style theaters were added, bringing the screen count to six.
Today the theater is a popular choice for specialty films. The concession stand was the first to offer sandwiches, specialty coffees, imported been and wine. The Cedar-Lee is an experience not to be missed!
Coventry Branch, Heights Libraries
The Coventry Village branch of the Heights Libraries was opened in the 1920s and has recently undergone a complete renovation. It offers fiction and non-fiction books, videos, DVDs, recorded books, CDs, teen materials, and children’s materials. The Coventry branch also receives 250 Russian books from Cleveland Public Library every other month and has a small number of other foreign language books including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, French, and Spanish. The library is currently in the process of developing a Local Author Collection of books and audio-visual materials by Cleveland Heights and University Heights authors.
The Coventry Branch is known for its extensive collection of library materials for the deaf as well as services for the hearing impaired. The library is open seven days a week and is located at 1925 Coventry Road, an easy walk from Coventry Road Apartments.
This, from the restaurant’s website nails it: “Walk into Nighttown at just about any time and you’ll find corporate titans, doctors from nearby Cleveland Clinic and University Hospital, Cleveland Orchestra members in tuxedos seated next to the patrons they just entertained, as well as college students from Case Western Reserve University, neighbors stopping in for a quick bite, lovers on dates, pre and post-theatergoers, people from all over the world traveling on U.S. State Department junkets and writers who are terribly flattered when someone mentions the fact their face is on a plaque in the Cleveland Journalism Hall of Fame (which just happens to be located at Nighttown).”
