Help us reach our goal: give to The Grand today
At the end of each year we ask you to consider a meaningful donation to help keep the nonprofit Grand Cinema growing and thriving.
Every year we like to use this opportunity to connect with our supporters, to learn more about why they love The Grand, and to share those perspectives. This year, we sat down with volunteers, board members, and staff to hear their stories. Through December, you will here from Van, Winnie, Heather, Bernadette, Katy, Jason, Ken, Lu, and Christopher in our theaters and on social media, sharing why they care about the work of The Grand Cinema.
Read on to learn how you can give back today too!

8 Reasons to become a member of The Grand Cinema
Why supporting The Grand Cinema through annual membership is awesome and worth every penny (and then some).
The relationship between The Grand and its members is symbiotic: members see films on our screens that are hard to find elsewhere, and enjoy all the extra bonuses that come along with membership. In return The Grand is able to keep providing high quality film art and programs to the Tacoma community. It’s a win-win.
To all those readers who are already members: thank you and please keep it up! And to anyone who has been wondering what membership at The Grand is all about, keep reading to learn what you get from becoming an active part of The Grand’s community.
