Page Manor Cinema: 1967-2011

There was recently a fire engulfing a large part of the Page Manor shopping center where the Page Manor Cinema is located. Although the fire did not damage the theatre, the Page went under the wrecking ball and bulldozer on April 11, 2011. The decision to tear down the theatre came as a complete surprise to everyone, including the Mayor, Development Director of Riverside and Nouveau Cinema Group, Inc. NGCI is currently seeking a new venue in the Miami Valley.

Page Manor Cinema torn down

The Mission of Nouveau Cinema Group, Incorporated (NCGI) is to broaden the knowledge and appeal of cinematic art to as many people as possible. We are dedicated to the preservation, restoration and management of culturally significant theatrical venues, and the preservation and presentation of quality retrospective and new world cinema as well as the presentation of cinematic, theatrical and musical festivals and art presentations.

In addition, NCGI envisions an educational outreach to the community which would include, but not be limited to, master classes/seminar series dealing with film history, production, arts and management. A multi-tiered Film Society would offer educational and entertainment opportunities to various, specialized groups and demographics.

Through film and educational outreaches we hope to broaden the knowledge and understanding of the ever-developing multi-cultural/ethnic components of our society. Regular foreign language and English language film product would be presented in equal proportions. Our educational outreach would include the introduction of quality world-film products to children. All presentations and educational services would be offered at as little charge to the community as possible. Additionally, our proposed scholarship/grant program would provide funding for students interested in pursuing a career in the arts with additional funding for other local, national and international, non-profit arts projects.
