Film Cincinnati and Memorial Hall present An Evening with Kevin Smith

April 10 update: Due to high demand, Kevin Smith is pleased to add a second performance at 9:30pm. Tickets on-sale now. Limited seats also remain for 6:30pm performance.

Kevin Smith has been saying silly cinematic shit since 1994’s Clerks. He almost dropped dead of a massive heart attack in 2018 but then lived to make more useless media that only he loves. 2024 marks the 30th year since the last time he had a real job. He also convinced someone to marry him and make him a Dad.
