AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE
Gift Memberships!

American Cinematheque Memberships make thoughtful gifts for the film lover in your life -- or consider a Membership for yourself! Keep an eye on our special offers for new members! And did we mention that memberships are also tax-deductible? Details

 

Warning:
If you choose to remove yourself from this list through Intellicontact it is permanent and we cannot add you back! Be careful when using the automatic update or remove features in Icontact.
We had a few poor souls who accidentally removed themselves from the list. You can add YOURSELF back by using the links in blue at the bottom of the e-mail.

Do You Blog About Film?
If you are interested in gaining exposure for your blog contact us at info@americancinematheque.com with "Blog" in the subject line and tell us a bit about yourself. If you have already contacted us we will be in touch soon!

Donations Needed!
URGENT! The Cinematheque van (that shuttles all the film prints to the theatre) is beyond repair. If you have one to donate, or a relationship with a dealer that might donate or give us a very good price, we are seeking a used cargo van immediately.

Our projectionists are seeking some 35 mm split reels. Do you have a Mini-DV camera you aren't using? Do you have a PC laptop that can run Powerpoint that you would like to donate to the American Cinematheque? We are seeking a 1 - 3 year old laptop to use in the Egyptian Theatre. As a non-profit, your donations to us are tax-decuctible. We will provide you with a donation letter to use at tax time. Please call 323.461.2020, ext. 121.

Did you know that a $1000 donation can buy you at seat at the Egyptian & Aero Theatre? Personalize a name plate on the back of the seat. Another great  gift idea for the Egyptian's 85th birthday!

Tell us what you would like to see! E-mail info "at" americancinematheque "dot" com
