And we have so much more planned for the rest of December.

Here’s an inside look at the action.

12:30-5:30PM: Shuttles to the Esquire Movie Theatre

At Deupree we know that, sometimes, there just isn’t anything that can beat surround sound, the silver screen, and a tub of movie theater popcorn. That’s why, every month, residents can enjoy a day at the movies with our shuttle service back and forth between one of Cincinnati’s great local cinemas.
Residents who are interested in taking in a show can always find the moving listings in the sign-up book five days before the trip.

7:00PM: Knox Presbyterian Christmas Concert

Knox Presbyterian right here in Hyde Park does Christmas in song and style.
This season, the fellowship will be hosting the Cincinnati premieres of Vaughan Williams’ joyous “Hodie” and Mendelssohn’s Christmas Cantata, “Vom Himmel hoch” (”From heaven above”)— with Earl Rivers conducts the Knox Choir, Cincinnati Children’s Choir, soloists and orchestra— for its annual Christmas concert.
