About Us

The current Rohs Opera House (pronounced ROSS) opened in 1941 with a showing of Down Argentine Way. Ticket price was $.05 for adults. It was originally built in 1871 as Aeolian Hall, a live production theatre located on the second floor. A silent movie projector was eventually added to bring "movies" to Cynthiana. In 1941, the "new" Rohs Opera House was added to the building by H. A. Rohs and his son Karle. These men are the grandfather and great grandfather of the actor Chris O'Donnel.

It is our goal to provide affordable entertainment to Cynthiana and the surrounding area. We offer movies, plays, concerts, comedy, variety shows and much, much more. The Rohs Opera House has also been listed on several "most haunted lists" and is a popular destination for ghost hunters and paranormal enthusiasts from all around.

While the Rohs Opera House staff and volunteers produce many "live" events each year, our recent partnership with the harriCYN Community Theatre has increased the offerings of live theatre productions in Cynthiana. There is always something happening at the Rohs Opera House in Cynthiana.
