The idea of expression and communication and understanding other cultures, those are all the values that make good, kind people. And I think that’s all we can hope to engender in this world.
The Cinema Arts Centre is a 501(c)3 not-for profit organization. The mission of the Cinema Arts Centre is to bring the best in cinematic artistry to Long Island, and use the power of film to expand the awareness and consciousness of our community.
We make a difference in our community by:
- Using the power of film to create empathy in a world where empathy is greatly needed
- Providing a venue for conversations and connections, serving as a true community center and what many of our members call their “home away from home”
- Generating approximately $7,000,000 in spending in our local economy through our role as an employer and our ability to attract visitors to our area
- Educating and mobilizing on important issues that are relevant to our members and patrons
Please download the Stock Transfer Form, and follow the instructions to formalize and execute your charitable gift, and please be sure to mail or email the completed information to the contact provided on the form.
