While sponsorship includes many advertising benefits, traditional advertising opportunities are also available. Purchasing ads on our screens or in our monthly program guide is another great way to gain exposure to our deeply engaged members and patrons.
Be a CAC Reopening Star!
When we temporarily closed our facility in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we immediately pivoted to online programming, including a virtual screening room, curated watch lists, celebrity interviews, lectures, workshops, and original productions. Our building may be closed, but we are still here, with over 25,000 opt-in email subscribers and over 22,000 social media followers, and a consistent daily audience for our streaming events.
While New York State now allows movie theaters to reopen and operate at 25% capacity, CAC will remain temporarily closed for a few more months. We are dedicated to the health and safety of our members, patrons, and staff. Rather than rush to reopen as we see infection rates begin to surge yet again, we are using this time to complete major renovations and improvements to our facility, including health and safety enhancements such as touchless payment systems, sneeze guards, and upgrading our ventilation system to improve air quality and filtration. We are also replacing our seats and carpets. When we reopen, we will be a cleaner, safer, and more comfortable home-away-from-home for our community.
These are challenging times to undertake such improvements, however necessary. We can’t do it without support. Individual members and donors have contributed tens of thousands of dollars since the pandemic began. We ask that you join them in helping to ensure a grand reopening for our independent community cinema. We ask that you become a Cinema Arts Centre Reopening Star.
Financial and In-kind sponsorship of the Cinema Arts Centre— with approximately 150,000 visitors each year and over 10,000 members—is an opportunity for great exposure to a diverse constituency. By sponsoring the Cinema Arts Centre you will align your business with a beloved cultural icon and increase visibility of your business to our loyal and passionate community members.
Movie Trivia Night!
Movie Trivia Night is a popular monthly event regularly filling our Sky Room Café. Teams of six or fewer answer 60 questions about actors and actresses, awards – and everything else associated with the world of film – in a battle of knowledge for cash and other prizes. Questions are projected on our big screen in the Sky Room Café, providing a great platform for visibility of your sponsorship. Be a part of this fast-paced, fun-filled evening, packing the house night after night.
NOTE: During our temporary facility closure, we are running this program on Zoom!

Being in the business that we’re in, sponsoring many receptions at the Cinema throughout the year is a perfect fit.

When we sponsor an event, we see our logo all over the place. The extra recognition is always appreciated and makes us feel like we are truly getting a noticeable return on our investment. They are a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend that businesses do whatever they can to become supporters of the Cinema Arte Centre!

My patients have been thrilled and full of smiles when we tell them that they get to experience their new clear vision at the movies, on us. I love that it makes them happy. Both I and my entire team at Huntington Eye Care are delighted to be able to give in a meaningful way to our favorite cultural Long Island icon.
