  • About the Carnegie

    The Otto M. Budig Theatre in the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center transports the audience to the ornate elegance of the early 1900s. Restored in 2006, the improvements include additional seating leg room, large movie screen and updated sound system. While the theatre holds 465 patrons we have limited the capacity to 350 seats -- to insure the best sight lines and audience experience.

    And YES, there is POPCORN !!

Doors open at 6:00 before evening screenings and the cash bar is in the adjacent Gallery/reception space. The Carnegie is located at 1028 Scott Blvd., Covington KY 41011(corner of Scott and Robbins, between 10th and 11th Streets).
