In addition to supporting the Cinema Arts Centre through membership, contributions and volunteerism, there are other unique opportunities to act on your values and support our vital cultural community hub.
Bigger, Brighter, Better
CLICK HERE to learn how to help us replace our screens in Theaters One and Two. UPDATE: We have replaced our screen in Theatre Two. Theatre One is next. Thank you!!
The Cinema Arts Centre is replacing the seats in two of our theaters, and we’d like to invite you to be a physical part of the Cinema by placing a custom plaque on one of our seats. Your message will be a highly visible part of these theaters for the full life of the seats, and is a great way to make your mark on the Cinema! Seat plaques won’t save your seat for you, but they do show how much you care about our Cinema community, and seeing yours can enrich your visits to the CAC! CLICK HERE or download THIS FORM.
NOTE: In 2016, we were offered a great deal on used seats and began to raise funds for seat replacement in Theaters One and Two. Since that time, the seller was forced to rescind the offer. We have held aside the funds that were raised, and are applying for additional funds to purchase new seats. However, even with the funds we have held aside, and if our application for funding is approved, there is still a gap to finance this critical project. A purchase of a seat plaque will help to ensure our ability to replace our nearly 30-year-old seats in Theaters One and Two. Seat plaques will be installed immediately upon installation of new seats in 2019.
Progress on Seat and Screen Replacement:
