How I Wish We Could Bring Back Fellini Film Café
I ventured out to Cincinnati street this paste weekend, and while I left before the college-aged patrons got the party started, I couldn't help but notice how much it's changed.
I celebrated my 21st birthday on Cincinnati street, of course. Cinci has always been the best place to party. My birthday evening started out at Craw Daddy's, which is still there. Then we ventured out to Black Market, which no longer exists.
As I looked out to Cincinnati street before I left, I couldn't help but feel a little bit sad that Fellini Film Café is no longer there.
Fellini Film Café was the hotspot for lovers of cinema. It catered to an audience who loved foreign and independent films; so naturally, as a college student who had just started taking film classes, it was one of my favorite places to go to.
Fellini Film Cafe was a great place to grab a latte or a sandwich and to catch the screening of a foreign or independent film. One of my very favorite memories was when I got to check out a screening of the Spanish horror film "[REC]" for the very first time when I was 19.
I can't quite remember when Fellini Film Café closed down, but I can definitely understand why it must have shut down- with Netflix and other streaming services available I'm sure it was hard to compete. After some brief research, this was the only photo of Fellini Film Café that I could find.
If people are longing for places like Blockbuster to come back- a place like Fellini Film Café would be a great place to make a comeback!
