therm for newsletter 10 17Each year, the Vic Skolnick Life of the Cinema Campaign raises vital funds for our programs and operations.  Members like you give fully tax-deductible annual gifts in addition to maintaining your Cinema Arts Centre Membership.  Members and supporters generously contribute to our Life of the Cinema Campaign and these funds help to bring you the independent cinema programming that is so important to you, and to cover operational expenses.  Last year, funds raised also helped us to replace our antiquated ticketing system with a new state-of-the-art ticketing solution which launched on October 1st.

This year our goal is to raise $150,000 for our programs and operations, as well as to support projects which will allow us to continue to reduce our carbon footprint and become more energy-efficient.

Among the many important issues elevated through Cinema Arts Centre programs, environmental issues are among the most relevant. The Cinema Arts Centre has served as a platform for a variety of pro-environmental groups and has used the power of film to raise consciousness, promote dialogue and inspire action on such issues as global warming, sustainable agriculture, energy efficiency and more. Additionally, our facility and our business practices reflect many pro-environmental choices, such as the use of bamboo, a renewable resource, in the construction of our Box Office and Sky Room Café.  Our café also features all-natural, organic and non-genetically-modified foods and uses recycled paper products and non-leaching biodegradable utensils.  Much of our facility is outfitted with high-efficiency, low-wattage lighting.  But there are many areas where we need to improve in order to become better environmental stewards.

Our HVAC system is over 30 years old.  Heating and air conditioning are essential to the Cinema, but our current system is inefficient and in need of constant repair.  A new system will save electricity and save money, allowing more funds to be used directly for our programs.  This will be one of several projects that will improve our energy efficiency.  Your contributions can help us achieve our goals for greening our cinema.

As you may remember, in 2012 the Cinema Arts Centre faced a revolution in the motion picture industry and needed to purchase and install new digital projection equipment in our three theatres in order to continue operation.  Our 2012 Vic Skolnick Life of the Cinema Campaign raised funds for programs, operations and digital projection equipment.  Our community responded and we were able to install that equipment the following summer.

In 2013, we asked you though the Life of the Cinema Campaign to support our programs, operations and to help us replace an antiquated ticketing system, and because of your response, we are currently operating with an improved system that can grow with us, helping us to improve customer service and delivery of member benefits.

Please, help us to reach our goal of $150,000 with your fully tax-deductible unrestricted gift of any amount.  Support our programs and operations, and help us to make critical upgrades to our facility that will reduce our carbon footprint, allowing us not only to preserve our great programs for future generations, but to preserve our environment.

    I became a member because 'members are the heart of the cinema.' I wanted to be part of that family, understanding that this is a nonprofit community cinema and member support is crucial to keep this cultural community experience going. – CAC Member
