What's New with Cinema Gift Cards?
Cinema Gift Cards may now be redeemed for more than just movie tickets! Gift cards can be used for tickets to our screenings and events, to purchase or renew Membership, and to buy food and refreshments. Are you looking for a gift for the film lover on your list? A Cinema Gift Card is a great choice. Now with more flexibility, you don't need to know if your gift recipient is already a Member. They can use your gift for Membership, tickets, and treats like our famous organic popcorn! Gift cards are available at the Box Office and at our website .

We have also just introduced e-delivery Gift Cards. Buy a Gift Card now and have it sent to your email immediately! Use it for yourself or send it to a friend for an instant holiday gift! CLICK HERE !

Thank you for sharing your love for our independent community cinema this holiday season.
Every Gift Counts. In December, Your Gift Counts Twice!
Please consider the Cinema Arts Centre in your year-end giving. CLICK HERE
We often talk about the importance of Membership, and it’s true that members are the heart of the Cinema. But when members also give an additional gift at year end to the Vic Skolnick Life of Our Cinema Campaign, these critical funds help to empower our program directors to make choices based on artistic and social merit, take risks, and include works from under-represented artists, and illuminate under-explored topics.
These above-and-beyond-membership donations are such a meaningful way for our community to fuel our programs and operations, helping us to make an impact in so many areas of our lives.
We make a difference in our community by:
  • Using the power of film to create empathy in a world where empathy is greatly needed
  • Providing a venue for conversations and connections, serving as a true community center and what many of our members call their “home away from home”
  • Generating approximately $7,000,000 in spending in our local economy through our role as an employer and our ability to attract visitors to our area
  • Educating and mobilizing on important issues that are relevant to our members and patrons

To help us reach our goal, the Alpern Family Foundation will match your contributions to our campaign in the month of December dollar-for-dollar up to a total of $20,000!
Sponsor Spotlight: Goidel Law Group
Program Sponsorship is an important way businesses or individuals can offset costs and allow the Cinema Arts Centre to re-invest more of our ticket revenue right back into community programs. We are pleased to share the following message from the founding sponsor of our Making Memories at the Movies Series:

At the Goidel Law Group, elder law and estate planning is not just about legal documents. It’s about establishing a relationship that ideally begins when our clients are relatively young and healthy and develops and deepens throughout their lives. It’s about planning holistically and working collaboratively with financial, social work, and health care professionals so that our clients receive counseling, services, and strategies designed to meet their particular needs and customized to satisfy their personal goals.  Concierge Care Coordination® , our flagship process, merges the best practices in elder law with geriatric social work and establishes the gold standard for both professions. 

We understand that many people procrastinate when it comes to estate planning, as discussions about incapacity and death are difficult and emotional. For clients planning proactively – before a health crisis -- our goal is to create a customized estate plan (including trusts, wills, and advanced directives) to protect them, their family members and their assets. For clients planning in crisis -- because a family member is experiencing critical health issues or care needs – our goal is to create a safe and effective care plan and seamlessly integrate it with sound legal strategies and financial planning required to fund the care. Whether clients are planning proactively or reactively, we truly listen to their concerns, care about their needs, and are committed finding solutions to alleviate their stress. Our team of professionals are extremely passionate about helping clients to age safely and successfully.
Our boutique practice is limited to aging and longevity law, health care advocacy, estate and asset protection planning, Medicaid and long-term care planning, Medicaid application preparation, Veterans benefits planning, probate, estate and trust administration, and guardianship proceedings. 
We accommodate clients by offering complimentary consultations and meetings in our Melville, Forest Hills and Manhattan locations. When clients are unable to travel, we meet at their residence or health care facility.

 The Cinema Arts Centre is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. The mission of the Cinema Arts Centre is to bring the best in cinematic artistry to Long Island, and use the power of film to expand the awareness and consciousness of our community.
Thanks to our December Program Sponsors:
