RTA is 44 years old this year, and the Cleveland International Film Festival is 43 -- that's a great partnership.
The 2019 Festival is March 27-April 7. We suggest that you comb the CIFF Program Guide, chose the movies you want to see, and plan your trip Downtown on RTA.
There are a number of easy and convenient ways to get to the Tower City Cinemas. RTA’s Red, Blue and Green Line 'Rapid' transit trains will get you inside Tower City* and just a short walk from the theaters. Parking is free at RTA stations and several stations are conveniently located near exits of I-71, I-90, I-480 and I-271.
RTA’s HealthLine runs 24/7 on Euclid Avenue and stops directly across from the JACK Casino, adjacent to Tower City. Several other bus routes run 24/7 as well.
RTA’s green trolleys operate around the Downtown area, including Playhouse Square, Cleveland State University and the Warehouse District. And best of all, you can ride for free with a smile. Trolleys operate on different routes with different hours during the day, evenings and on the weekends.

Proof of Payment on the Red Line and on the HealthLine
Fare payment on the Red Line and on the HealthLine is made at the red Ticket Vending Machines at each station. Purchase or activate your farecard at these machines, and retain this ticket until you exit the system. Fare inspections can occur on the Red Line, and all HealthLine operators will ask to see proof of payment when you board.
