The Picture House was built in 1921 and, in 2005, became a 501(C)(3) nonprofit regional film center providing the very best in film and education programming for all audiences.

The movie business is a tricky one – and being a nonprofit is pretty tricky too. Earned income – from ticket and popcorn sales, etc  –  accounts for about half of the operating budget. The other 50% comes from grants, sponsorships, and the generous support of members and donors like you.

Each year, starting right around Thanksgiving, we launch our annual appeal to remind you of the need for support – and to show you the impact your dollars have had! This  year, we’re proud to present our first ever annual report to show you how much you accomplished in 2015. (Next year at this time, you’ll see the 2016 report.)

As you flip through the pages, we hope you’ll consider supporting our Annual Appeal this year. You’ll be helping bringing great films and guests to The Picture House and supporting education programs in area schools and community groups with severely reduced (at times even non-existant) arts funding. Your generosity directly supports our mission:

The Picture House is dedicated to creating a shared community experience for diverse audiences through film, education programming and unique cultural offerings. Our historically preserved and restored theater offers a unique gathering place dedicated to entertaining, enriching, and inspiring a sense of wonder for all ages.
