At The Picture House we cover basic operating costs through revenue from memberships, ticket sales and concessions, but much of our mission-driven programming and the preservation of our 1921 landmark theatre depends upon additional support from grants and sponsorships­­ – and from the individuals, like you, who make up the greater Picture House community.

You enable us to provide adventurous film programming, engaging film classes and workshops for all ages—all inside a beautifully restored and maintained historical theater. You help support:

Here are just some of the ways we do that – thanks to your generous support:

  • Free Tuesday matinees for Seniors
  • Late Night at The Picture House – programming for teens, managed by The Picture House Junior Film Advisory Board
  • Education programs at The Picture House for students from Pre-K through adults—and in area schools (Pelham, Rye and Larchmont) and community organizations (the Boys and Girls Clubs of Mount Vernon and New Rochelle)
  • The Picture House Film Club with not-yet-released films and their stars, directors and writers
  • Special events like the screenings of Blackfish, Mothers of Bedford, Girls of Dajara
  • Incredible evenings with baseball legend Ralph Branca (42), with magician Ricky Jay, and with basketball player, now coach, Willie Worsley (Glory Road)
  • Fun family events like The Nutcracker
  • Events for our inner stars—like Sing-a-Long Grease, Songs that Made the Movies and our anniversary celebration of Purple Rain

By supporting The Picture House, you are not just preserving an historic theatre — you’re preserving the ability to gather as a community and do the important and the silly, celebrate the memories of the past, establish the memories of the future, the ability to gather as a community and celebrate art, ideas, eduction and entertainment. You’re supporting the growth of an important cultural resource that makes a difference in the community and the region and the world beyond.
