A New Theater
At a Landmark Location
With an Iconic Name!
Our new theater will rise from the western peak of Cincinnati, at a location
that once featured a true city landmark - the Price Hill incline. Now, our new
landmark will bear the name of an iconic, respected institution also on the rise
- Warsaw Federal.
Just like its namesake, the Warsaw Federal Incline Theater will serve people
from across the region yet remain firmly rooted in its East Price Hill
community. I want to thank Rick Flynn and the board of Warsaw Federal for
joining with Cincinnati Landmark Productions to create this exciting new venue.
Both companies have set a course for success with the Warsaw Federal Incline
Speaking of thanks: our gratitude goes out to Pete Rose for headlining the March
30 event at the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts as a fundraiser the
Warsaw Federal Incline Theater. Over $21,500 was raised toward the project! All
kinds of West Side "All Stars" were there, including Mayor John Cranley, Buddy
LaRosa, State Representative Denise Driehaus, Tom Croft, Bill Burwinkel, Satch
Colletta and Doug Ridenour. Plus, the Dan Driehaus Insurance Group and Altenau
Financial Services sponsored the event, helping insure its success.
With all this good news, Cincinnati Landmark Productions has drawn ever closer
to our final fundraising goal. We're 97% there! But like any non-profit theater
company, we can use all the help we can get. I hope you will spread the word on
this great undertaking and encourage people to contribute financially. We can
capitalize on all the momentum revved up by Warsaw Federal and fundraisers like
An Evening with Pete Rose to generate the last donations needed to complete this
exciting addition to the Incline District and the entire region.
With your help, we'll break ground soon and be open in Spring 2015. I hope
you'll come share the nights of excitement at the new Warsaw Federal Incline
Theater - you'll be proud to have shared in its creation. You'll be entertained
and amazed every time you visit.
Cincinnati Landmark Productions announced today a partnership
with Warsaw Federal to name the forthcoming Incline Theater.
"With over a century of business in Cincinnati, Warsaw Federal
is part of the fabric of Price Hill - always committed to making the community a
better place to live, work and play," said Richard T. Flynn, President and CEO
of Warsaw Federal. "Supporting a vibrant performing arts organization, such
as Cincinnati Landmark Productions, aligns
with our core values. We look forward to developing this partnership and
deepening our relationships within the greater Cincinnati area."
"We're overjoyed an humbled
by the support of Warsaw Federal in our efforts to bring the performing arts to
the Incline District," said Tim Perrino, executive artistic director of
Cincinnati Landmark Productions. "It's a privilege to have the theater named
after such a venerable West Side institution."
Warsaw Federal's history in East Price Hill dates back to 1893,
when Franklin Walters, John Weber and Edward Doctor began the Warsaw Federal
Savings and Loan Association to serve the growing need for saving and loan
services in the neighborhood. The group shared a building with Weber's shoe
repair shop at 3112 Warsaw Avenue and helped build the Price Hill community by
providing construction and new home financing. In the years since, Warsaw
Federal has grown into a regional operation, opening additional offices and
branches around Cincinnati, as well as through on-line banking services
available around the world.
At last update, funding commitments represented over 91 percent
of the goal. Today, that number is 97 percent!
Only about $200,000 of the $5.6 million is left
to be raised, and with your help we can get there quickly. Please consider a
personal donation or a gift in remembrance of a loved one, or contact the
Incline Theater team about corporate naming rights. Every dollar counts!
After fundraising is completed, the truly exciting phase of the project begins:
