THE PICTURE HOUSE 2017 ANNUAL APPEAL

This year has been particularly difficult for arts funding …but we have exciting news to share! In order to inspire Picture House support, a wonderfully generous Board member has provided $20,000 in matching funds for this year’s appeal. Please help us meet this match with the knowledge that your donation will have double the impact in providing great films, access to the arts, and a stronger community.

The Picture House Regional Film Center is more than a movie theater. It’s a place where

  • THOUSANDS OF FILM GOERS have their eyes opened and their horizons expanded through film.
  • HUNDREDS OF NEIGHBORS – from White Plains to the Bronx – come together and fill local restaurants for Film Club and other special film events, boosting the local economy.
  • SCORES OF COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS partner with us to help elevate issues through film, and provide a thriving community hub for lower Westchester.
  • STUDENTS WORKING INDIVIDUALLY AND COLLABORATIVELY throughout the county build skills, find their voices and give back to their communities through Picture House filmmaking classes.

Just this year, members of the Girls, Inc. Leadership Council were able to raise awareness of domestic abuse through their filmmaking. In Yonkers, a marginalized student found confidence – and perhaps a dream – playing Thurgood Marshall in a Black History Month film. Filmmaking changed his view of history and, most importantly, of himself.

There is magic in the moviesand without your support, it just can’t happen.  As much as 65% of ticket revenue goes back to the film distributors, and 75% of the money we raise is restricted and can’t be used for basic operating costs like heat, electricity for the popcorn machine, or a bulb for the projector. So, when a program has great impact, but the grants don’t cover the need – your donations are what makes the difference.

Thank you for supporting YOUR theater. We look forward to seeing you at the movies soon.

 

We want to put YOU in the spotlight. As an added bonus to help us meet this match, and as a thank you for your support we will put your individual message on our virtual marquee for any gift of $100 or more. Gifts of $1500 and greater will get your message on our iconic exterior marquee. See details on the  donation form for more details.
